One For The Boys

One For The Boys

Hi everyone, I hope that you've all been enjoying this lovely weather that 
we've been having these past two weeks, Summer is definitely here isn't it. 
We've had some glorious sunshine during the day but WOW the storms at 
night have been spectacular here on the north east coast. I absolutely love 
thunder storms, I also love the rough and angry sea too and often head on 
down to the beach to watch the storms there because you can see for miles. 
Well onto today's post which is a card that I made at the weekend, I don't 
make nearly enough cards for the menfolk so I thought I would make one 
for a change, we can't have the menfolk left out now can we lol.

Card Recipe
Black Textured Card cut down to make a 6"x 6" card base.
Dark Olive Green Core'dinations Card
Design Papers from Santoro's Gorjuss 
LOTV Topper which I added Glossy Accents and Distress Ink
