Vintage Man

Hi everyone! Todays card is for Ooh-La-La Creations challenge#52, Vintage man. The challenge we all struggle with "men's cards"! I suppose if they reacted in some way we would have a clue what they liked, but generally you just get "nice, thanks" when you ask them if they like it. My man is quite well trained now so it's a bit easier, apparently most men don't mind a few flowers on their card so there's hope for us all haha!
I've used Scrappy Sketch Sunday's layout, and the image is from "The Graphics Fairy". I used my fiskars lattice punch on the horizontal band(not too lacey) and the castle bakground paper is from My Craft Studio's Walk in Wonderland cd1. A few copper brads and a flora doodle coloured to match to finish. Enjoy!
love as always Gina x x x
