A Wise Man

A wise man.  Are you thinking of the 3 wise men?  Not even close to the card I want to share with you today.  Hee hee.  Did I trick you and make you think you were going to be viewing a Christmas card?  I am in Europe still so my mind is in vacation mode.  No Christmas thoughts.  Just beautiful Marseilles, France.  :-)

We have a masculine challenge for this week's Sentimental Sundays so I really focused on using darker colors with a minimal amount of embellies.  Let's see how you think I did.

I mixed a variety of papers for this.  I started with some Making Memories on the lower half.  The top is K & Co. including the banner.  I printed the sentiment(this was a freebie set which she offers each week on the blog)  from Raindrop Echo onto craft card stock, cut out and then clipped the edges to resemble a ticket.  I was thinking banners are seen at men's events like Nascar right?  You need a ticket to get in so a man would be seen with that right?  I seriously was fixating on a race because the brads reminded me of the wheels you see on the cars.  I know.  My mind works mysteriously.  Anyhow, the twine is my favorite and I can;t tell you where it comes from because someone sent it to me.  I inked it with Vintage Touch inks for a tad bit of distressing.

Thanks for stopping by!
