BOING ! BOING ! BAGGIES....



Well i hate making men's cards,but needs must as they say...lol,you just can't pretty a man's card up now can you...well i suppose you can if they're batting for the other side..lol,but the fella who this card is for is well and truely all man....
It's for one of my hubby's friends...and as you've gathered a big football fan,i'm pleased to say my hubby's not interested in the game,now thats one thing in his favour...lol.
The team he supports is West Bromwich Albion hence the "Boing! Boing! Baggies".
The stamp i've used is by Hunkydory from a set called "Golden Oldies 1",coloured with my Promarkers and prisma's....had to have a rest from the Copic's,they're doing my head in...lol.
The papers are all Basic Grey "Archaic".
The sentiment stamp is Autumn Leaves "Ticketed".
Ribbon and brads from stash.

Well, this is definitely a man's card! Let's just let them think it isn't pretty. I think it's not only a hoot, but pretty too! Love those manly blue and brown colors!!! TFS
