A card and Giveaway Reminder

Good morning everyone, I thought I would show you another card made using the fabulous Ooh La La Creations Shawn Jenkins Collection CD and remind you about my little giveaway that can be found HERE - only a few days left to enter.


This is quite a vintage card for me, I have used a gorgeous image called Elegant Rooster, the burgundy papers are also from the CD and I used a stencil and Distress Inks to create the beige papers. I have distressed the Co'rdinations card stock and inked the edges of all of the papers.

The flower was die cut from hessian and I made a twine flower to go on top.  LOTV sentiment stamps, some buttons and card candy from my stash complete my card.  I have added an insert from the CD to the inside.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Ooh La La Creations Challenge 148 - A Man Card

I hope you're keeping well Pauline. I'm sorry I've not visited for so long, as you know it's been a pretty rough 12 months, but slowly but surely I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things.
