I Need a Man!

Well if I'm honest I need a "card" for a man!!! Lol!
Here's Strongo The Magnificent (Just Inklined)to the rescue!!

 I needed this card in a hurry & fortunately I already had this image coloured up (using my promarkers).
As you can see it's a clean & simple card.
I started with a black A6 card, to which I added a matt of lightweight purple card, which I had punched along the bottom & at the corners. I then added a smaller matt of olive green designer paper at an angle. (The paper actually had flowers on it but I managed to avoid showing them!) The image was cut out using my nesties, I inked the edges with distress ink, added three star brads to one corner the added to the card.
Next I added a punched flourish to each corner, a couple of peel off greetings & that was that!
Thought I'd treat you to a closer look at those biceps!!!
Hope you like him!
Thanks for looking!

I must also say hello to my latest followers! Thank you for stopping by  Gill, Helen, Doreen, Jaque, Claire, Angel, Jennifer B & Mina! Great to have you along!!!
