Man About Town

Hi Folks
Hope things are okay with all of you.  Hubby and I are away this weekend.  We are going with our friends to the annual Queen convention that we attend every year.  This year it is being held in Southport.  A fun packed Friday to Monday listening to Queen music, watching tribute bands and lots of drinking.  Just got to get through three more shifts at work before then.

Today I thought I would share a card I did a little while ago.  It is a male card and I used toppers and papers from the Man About Town CD from Kraftyhands.

I printed the layered topper, sentiment and papers from the CD and decided to make a stepper card.  I cut the stepper card from kraft card.  For embellishments I added a couple of wooden cog flourishes that I embossed with some bronze embossing powder.

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.  I really appreciate all the support and the comments that you leave me.  I am trying to comment on your gorgeous blogs when I can but time is limited at the moment.  The demands of a full time job lol.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
