Forever friends challenge

This weeks challenge on FF is 'your inspiration'


So i challenged myself to make a mens card as I always struggle with them it also happens to be my brother in laws birthday in January so i thought I would use this as inspiration.


My card blank is corrugated card which I gave a double spine to give the appearance of a book and the image was one given to me by my friend Kirsten I watercoloured it which was a little fiddly! and matt and layered onto papermania white core card stock and papers which i believe are DCWV which I lightly sanded with a fine emery board then added some small gold brads and a sentiment strip.

Thanks for looking.........
