For the Men - new challenge at TIOT

Hi you all! Today is the begin of a new challenge over at TIOT - 'For the men'.
I have made yet another easel card. The image is from Gecko Galz, and reminds me of Downton Abbey.
I fussy cut the image and mounted onto some dark brown paper with a very elegant design, and mounted that onto some gold embossed paper - nothing but the best! I added a few punched swirls made from a scrap of the gold paper. The sentiment is a quote from Winston Churchill. The little card on the stopper can be opened and closed with the ribbon.
The image and background were printed out for me by Diane, and came together with the things I showed yesterday. Thanks again!



I am also linking to Sugar Creek Hollow, 'make a masculine card for Father's Day'
and to Simon Says Stamp and Show - 'S'  - simple, satisfied, shiny, satin, sleek man.

Have a nice day, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  11. na das ist echte PERFEKTION! hinreissend edel!
    bei uns ist kein Hochwasser.. aber mein vater ( er wohnt in Oberösterreich hatte schon Wasser im Keller aber war nicht ganz so schlimm)
    aber es ist ja noch nicht ausgestanden... echt schlimm..
    hier war 2002 in der Nähe ganz besonders schlimm..

    aber noch ist der Kamp, der durch Gmünd fließt ( ich bin da 9 km entfernt) in seinem Bett...

    ich hoffe und denke so an all die Betroffenen ..immer diese Naturkatastrophen ..

    ja wir wissen schon dass wir selber schuld sind - wir Menschen...
    trotzdem!
