Good morning lovelies,
It's Thursday again which means it's time for my
 Just Inklined card for this week.

I used the wonderful Albert to make an Anniversary card this time!
He's such a sweetie but I can see him as a bit of a Hell's Angel
in his younger days!
I opted for a Monochromatic theme for this card.
The papers I've used are from the Male Craft Pad from

This sketch from The Sketch File 
was the inspiration for the layout of my card

I coloured Albert with my Flexmarkers, cut with a round Spellbinders Die
then inked with Old Photo Distress ink, whilst still in the die.

The sentiment is from LOTV, I stamped it with clear ink then
heat embossed with Copper embossing powder.
The ribbon is upcycled from a top & the buttons are from my stash.
Thanks for popping in today, I love it when you do!
