Today's card is a bit of a change of style from my recent ones, the new challenge at Creative Inspirations is Fathers Day or a card for Dad, and I prefer to stay away from cute when it comes to men! I used a PaperArtsy image which I stamped over a distress inks background which I had spritzed with water for the mottled effect. I kept the rest of the card very simple adding just some brads and a charm from my stash together with some string from some packaging which I recycled.
Our challenge is sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this time.

I am still giggling that you prefer to stay away from cute when it comes to men, whereas I find that sort the most attractive man!!

Great card though, very 'male'
