One for the boys !

This is my card for the following challenges :

I started by using Distress Ink on white card and blending together Pumice, Weathered Wood, Faded Jeans and Corduroy. I stamped the main image, which is from a Darkroom Door stamp set, in Faded Jeans. The horizontal piece has had the same inks blended over it and then I've used a Stampin' Up punch down one edge and stamps from the Darkroom Door set.

The background paper is from a K&Co pad and I've distressed it around the edge and blended Vintage Photo Distress ink around the edge. The brad is a gorgeous velvet one from a Laura Ashley set, I've rubbed Vintage Photo around the edge.

We've had a beautiful day today, it's been so nice to see the sun ! We actually got up early and went a walk around a local nature reserve, it was lovely listening to the birds and not a soul in sight ! Hope you've had a good day too !

Thanks for looking
