An inky distressed one...

Hello!  Something a bit different today... I keep being asked for male cards that aren't cute - inconsiderate men expecting grown up cards eh lol?!  So I'm trying to 'grow' my collection of sensible male themed stamps at the moment, and this is one of my new ones...



Items Used
Stamp - Darkroom Door
Papers - Prima Romance Novel
Distress inks in Antique Linen & Walnut Stain
Button, silver brad and twine from my stash
Sentiment stamps - Stampin' Up

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Ooh-La-La - it's a man thing
Creative Creations - the letter B (bike, brown, brad, button, brother...)
Creative Card Crew - masculine
Sunday Stamper - use brown

Off for a little commenting catch up... Hope you all have a lovely evening :o)

** Enter my candy here **
