One for the Boys!

Greetings! It's Monday and that means a new challenge over at Make My Monday.  The theme this week is "One for the Boys."  I began by smooshing Old Paper, Pumice Stone and Evergreen Bough Distress Ink onto a craft mat, adding water and sopping up the inks.  The time pieces from the Auld Lang Syne plate from Artistic Outpost were stamped over the background.  The main image from the Think and Wonder plate, also by AO, was stamped on scrap card stock, matted and added to the card front.  The smaller image on the lower right is also from AO.  Lots of Tim Holtz elements finish off my guy card.  I found dark blue green buttons that go perfectly with the background, which really thrilled me.  Thanks for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne.

Great card for a guy Yvonne - I can nearly taste cocoa with those chocolate colours and stamp. All the embellishments look perfect and I'm so glad you had those buttons too! Fabulous make! Enjoy the rest of your day. Nicola x

Hi Yvonne. How beautifully you've put all those elements together. I love the inky stamped background and the trio of tickets.
