Lazy Afternoon

I always struggle to do men's cards but I love this Lily of the Valley stamp - "Lazy Afternoon" which has been coloured with Promarkers.  If I close my eyes I can almost imagine myself laying in the sunshine..........

The backing papers used on this card are from the Forever Friends "Just for Him" set and they have all been edged with faux stitching.

The sentiment is from the Lily of the Valley "Dreamy Days" set and has been edged with Tim Holtz distress inks - antique linen & vintage photo.

The buttons are from DoCrafts Papermania Capsule Collection.

This card has been entered into the following challenges:

ColourQ - sketch
Critter Challenge - sketch
Ooh La La Creations - it's a man thing
Creative Craft World - card for a male
Moving Along With The Times - project for a male
