One for the Men!

I am always hearing complaints from people saying they find 'male' cards really hard to do so, last night, I had a play to see what I could come up with. Lo and behold when I logged into the LIM challenge blog this morning the theme for the week is 'Masculine' - spooky or what??
Unlike my usual hurried crafting on a Saturday morning all I had to do was take a photo and here it is.
I used the Banner punch, which is free in the SAB promotion, to punch out some flags from a piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and positioned this down one side of a card blank using dimensionals. The three Night of Navy flags were placed to the side of this, again using dimensionals, and a sentiment from the Hostess set, Express Yourself, was stamped in Night of Navy. The flags needed something just to finish the card off and, after a bit of pondering, I decided to use some of the small Basic Rhinestones - well who says men can't have a bit of bling :0)
I hope you have all survived last night's horrendous storm without too much damage. I thought I was going to wake up with my house around my ears but, thankfully, no damage this morning apart from a few pots blown over. Have a lovely weekend and stay safe.
Back soon
