Its a man thing!

Today's challenge at Ladybug Crafts Ink has been chosen by the fabulous Pami and she has went all masculine!! I love making men's/boys cards so this was right up my street lol. I did a bit of recycling for this card too. The brown kraft type paper is wrapping paper from a bunch of flowers I got for my birthday:) which I scrunched up to give a mucky effect. Hope you all get time to join us, remember you have the chance of winning a stamp of your choice from Ladybug Crafts Ink too;) We also have a lovely guest designer stepping in while Hayley has a little break so hop on over and give Julie a lovely welcome.
Image - Jack and the worm
Papers - kraft paper and Hot off the Press
Embellishments - MS punch, faux stitching, doodling, peel off dots
