Happy Wednesday!

Good Morning all!!!
It's back to work for me today after my Jolly Hols!
I hope you all had a good time over the Festive Season!
The Challenges are back on at Dude Time Doodles
This week is Anything Goes!
Here's my card

It's a birthday card for an older chap who likes a glass or two of Rioja!
He's a sharp dresser just like Chick Saunders, the image I have used.
The image was coloured with Promarkers then cut out with a nesties label die.
I lightly edged it with Antique Linen Distress Ink sadly,
 it doesn't show up too well in the photo!
I made an A6 tent fold card blank for the base.

The earthy colours I have used were inspired by the recipient.
(Tip- Using earthy colours gives a great masculine feel to a card!)
I used a matt of white card again lightly edged with distress ink,
then a matt of green to which I added a strip of hessian mesh.
Next I added the image & a couple of photo corners along with 
some of my new funky fibres in co-ordinating colours.

The sentiment is a freebie from Create with TLC 
 I think it's perfect for this card!
