It's A Man's World at Crafting Musketeers

Hi Everyone
I have been busy this week decorating my bedroom.  The new carpet is being fitted today so can finally see an end in sight.  Hopefully, I will be able to get into my crafty room and have a play later.

Today I am here to share some inspiration for our current challenge over at Crafting Musketeers.  Our theme for this month is:
It's A Man's World

Here is my inspiration project:


I decided to try and create an elegant looking card for this challenge.  I used a stamp set from Wild Rose Studio.  Once stamped I cut out the image and rounded the corners before adding some distress ink and matting onto black card.  The background was done using an Imagination Crafts stencil and distress ink.  I added some faux stitching and black ribbon.  The little cocktail glasses and sentiment are also part of the stamp set.

Thanks for popping by and hope you will join in with our challenge.  Our sponsor for this month is JGD Crafts and I am looking forward to seeing your creations.  Just pop over to Crafting Musketeers for full challenge details.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
One Crazy Stamper - Anything goes
Penny Black and More - Birthdays
613 Avenue Create - Anything goes
Scribble and Scrap - Anything goes
TTCRD - Anything goes
The Paper Shelter - For the boys
Fab N Funky - Masculine
Simon Says Stamp - Make own background
Creative Card Crew - Sentiment
