My Time to Craft! Challenge #345 Masculine

Good morning! I hope you are all having a good weekend! We have grey skies and a chilly wind here in S-E Herts, but on the bright side I have seen several Swifts flying by in the last couple of days, which means that Summer is on its way!

On to our new Challenge at My Time to Craft! and it's to make something For the Men in Our Lives. Yes, one of those tricky creations for a bloke!

I've made a Father's Day card - I know the actual day isn't until June, but I thought I'd be efficient and make one early!

I used the Balloon Bouquet outline die from Simon Says Stamp and cut it in black card. I glued it to the card front, which is covered with paper from an old Studio Calico Kit. Then I cut the die again from snippets of coloured card and inlaid them. I gave them some sparkle with a Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.

The sentiment is from an old set by Clearly Besotted, sadly it's now out of print.

Do go and see my teamies' gorgeous creations for some great inspiration!

Thanks for looking!

love Mags B x
