One For The Boys!!!

I am doing a class on men's cards in the morning and have had to come up with a quickie-ish card to go with the waterfall card that is the main one. As the main card is a medieval theme I thought we would stick with that and this card is so simple but effective I think.
The image by TandaStamps has been stamped onto dark brown card using Versamark and has then been embossed using clear powder. It has then been washed over with H2O's in two metallic shades. Mounted onto gold and then onto a piece of the same dark brown card embossed using the Cuttlebug Diamonds In The Rough folder which has then been skimmed over with a Brilliance Coffee Bean ink pad. The peeloff greeting has been coloured with an OHP pen to make it more in keeping with the colour scheme.
I'm going to make a couple more of these and try out some different colourways but they will have to wait until tomorrow now.
It's been a fine old spring day here today. The sunshine really cheers people up......well except for me that is. I have been so hot I thought I was!!! That makes me a bit crotchety I'm afraid and even more because I had worn a thick jumper this morning. What's the betting that tomorrow I will wear something a little lighter and it will be freezing!!!
Well I had best go and see if I can find something to put in a sandwich to take with me tomorrow. I was a bit naughty and spent my weeks lunch money today on a 6x6 Basic Grey Boxer pad and a K & Co Mira Designer Mat Pad........there really is no hope for me is there?
Bye for now
