Hello Blog Friends - thanks so much for dropping my today - I always love to know you have been!  I thought it was time I shared a masculine card with you.

I have used a stamp set I won in a challenge a little while ago - and I have to admit I love this wonderful gentleman from Fronzcraft - a New Zealand company that I had never visited before but am thrilled to have won this set and a few individual stamps - worth checking them out - I was pleasantly surprised by the prices too.

I have stamped the image using IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Memento™ Dye Ink in Espresso Truffle - don't you love that colour!!!  The background is created using IMAGINECrafts®/Tsukineko® Kaleidacolor™ Dye Inkpad in Tomato Vine.

The side of the card has been embellished using the Spellbinders Grand Calibur® Machine and the  Sprightly Sprockets Spellbinders® Shapeabilities®

  Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L - 3D Foam Squares.  E-Z Runner have been used on this card.  The bling is from Want2Scrap. The sentiment and script are from Stampers Anonymous. Textured twine finished off the card.

This card is lined to the following challenges:
Artistic Inspirations - Anything Goes 100th Celebration
 Crafting from the Heart - Always Anything Goes 
Use Your Stuff - Travel 
613 Avenue Create - Anything Goes + Optional Shaped Cards
