Vintage masculine

This card is for my Uncle, who’s in his 80s, so a vintage masculine theme sprang to mind. I glanced at the current colour challenges, dismissed them, and then went back to Fab Friday’s Grey, Turquoise (Bermuda Bay) and Lemon Lime Twist colours.  I used my nearest colours as I don’t have the originals.

Mermaid Lagoon and Hickory Smoke Distress inks and Colorbox Lime, including on the background of the sentiment strip. I used dark turquoise backing card. Uniko and L’Aquarelle for the sentiment, masculine vintage stamps from Sheena Douglass, Docrafts and Heidi Swapp.

This is entered into Fab Friday’s Challenge 136

Also Cards in Envy’s Birthday theme challenge (this one is definitely going in an envelope!)

Haiku:

Wishing you joyful
Twilight years of family
and sweet memories.
