Magnificent Men

Good morning everyone,

Another week is starting, are we ready? Well, to be honest, I could have done with a couple of hours more sleep, but never mind. The Ooh La La Challenge is starting today with the theme "Magnificent Men". Let's celebrate the men in your lives by creating some stunning cards for them! I made my card for my father, who has loved horses all his life. So this image was perfect for him! I started with the image and selected some muted brown, green and pink papers to compliment the lovely image, added some embellishments and voila!

Looking forward to seeing all your lovely projects, we really do love visiting your blogs and gawking at your creative makes :)

* Ooh La La Stallion image from Yesterday's Memories CD (my absolute fave!)
* Papermania Birdsong & K&Co Ancestry DPs, distressed with TH distressing tool
