Masculine

.......is the theme of this week's 'Less is More' challenge, and after some consideration this is what I came up with.






The sentiment was printed with a font that came from a site that Mandi recommended and the stamp is one I've had for yonks by Stampendous.  I coloured the pen with watercolour pencils and punched the edge of the card with an SU punch. 

My 11 yr old niece Emily always refers to men as 'dudes' which always amuses me, so that was the reason behind the sentiment.  I'm going to see said niece in her school swimming gala tonight so I'd better shake a leg.

Thanks for stopping to look and for taking the time to comment.

  3. Fiona, this is another stunner.
    What is the name of this fabby font?
    I love that one!
    The punch is very effective too.
    My son-in-law is having a Mont Blanc pen from his dad for his 30th birthday this weekend, this card would have been great for him with that super image!
    See you next time!

  15. Great card Fiona and that punch works perfectly with your image. I did visit the Craft Barn a few weeks ago but didn't get any papers!! Just some necessities like tape, glue etc.... oh and an expensive cutting die fell into my basket!
