Makes a change from blue

This is a card for my FIL.I wanted to make something uncomplicated (as I do with most men’s cards) so I used this K & Co paper from the Hopscotch pad.It has a nice multi-layered look without me having to put the effort in – LOL (or maybe more of a Muttley snigger).I used the Polka Dots Cuttlebug folder on a piece of So Mod Core’dinations card,punched the edge with a Martha Stewart Traditional Scallop punch and inked it with Rich Cocoa Memento ink.Next I cut a Nellies Multi Frame Die Oval from cream card and stamped the car ( it’s an old stamp I won on eBay a couple of years ago).I coloured  it with my Polychromo pencils then used my new blender pencil over the top.I inked the edges with a mix of Potter’s Clay and Rich Cocoa Memento.I printed the sentiment on the computer and cut the tag from a Sizzix Bigz die.I think I made a pretty good job of lining it up considering I couldn’t see  where I was cutting exactly – it’s so much easier with Nesties!It was inked in the same way.I foung a lovely piece of  hairy string (love the stuff) and tied the tag on.I then mounted it as one very carefully using foam tape.
