Fabulous male card Nic. Love the sentiment and the penny farthing die. Your inking round the edges is fab it almost makes it look like it is rolled under. Have a good day at work. Susan xx

Suzie's Card Den said...

Amazing male card - such a great idea and I LOVE those papers, I wondered where I had seen them before - then I saw what you said in the description and it all fell into place - someone was pinning dozens of pictures on Pinterest over the weekend of Gorjuss girl cards - I had forgotten just how nice those stamps are, I wonder if you can still buy the paper?
Hugs
Suzie xx
