Got to get those cards made, especially as I have to post mine airmail back to England!  PBSC have a Masculine theme this month, which seemed apt to spur me on with my FD card and I liked the sketch at Sweet Sketch Wednesday this week too, so combined them both in order to make this:

The image is a Margaret Sherry Penny Black.  It was in a pack free with a UK card magazine so I don’t know the stamp name.  He was coloured with Prisma’s, cut out and popped up on foam tape.  All of the papers are from the snippets drawer. the large piece is We R memory Keepers and is my last really large bit of this, it was a 12×12 double sided sheet.  The green dotty piece is a scrap from a DCWV Christmas stack, the circles is from Recollections and the yellow is Raspberry Road, another freebie with a UK card magazine.

The green scalloped matting card is in fact a card base that’s a really odd colour green, it works brilliantly for matting or scraps but I could never make it work as a card base, too weird of a colour!  The sentiment is from a Funky Hand clear set which was also a freebie, and the only thing I added in the way of any embellishments was the two photo corners.
