Elusive Masculine cards !


stampin up demonstrator zoe tant
Hello everyone.  It's been a busy week culminating with Stampin' Up! training in Coventry on Saturday which I attended with several members of my team which was great fun.  We stopped on the way home for a meal at TGI Fridays and returned having had lots of fun to rural Lincolnshire. 
Since returning I've been preping for my numerous techniques clubs this week, but found enough time to make this masculine card for the challenge over at Less is more.  I've used one of my favourite sets Autumn Days which is very popular with my customers as many go shooting or are farmers.  I used the rock and roll technique to varigate the leaf colour and markers to make Fergal the Pheasant colourful.  My sentiment is from Occasional Greetings.  The layers, although all very vanilla add some depth to this simple card. 
Finally today I'd like to thank everyone for all their thoughtful comments following the death of my friend Pamela, whether on here as a comment, face to face or via a card.   Thank you your thoughtfulness is greatly appreciated.
Back soon.

  2. This is lovely Zoe, the variegated colour of some of the leaves is really effective and you managed to get some super colours onto the pheasant! The couple of white layers also add a little texture to the whole composition!
    Thanks for another super submission!
