Divas by Design - Let's Hear it For the Boys!

Hello.... I hope you are all doing ok today?.... I can't quite believe we are now into March!! where did February go? Lol .... it's Team A's turn again over at 

and we have a wonderful theme for you this week of....

'Let's Hear it For the Boys'

I've kept things simple for this classic male card... using a pre-coloured topper from LOTV.

Image: LOTV - 'Vintage Boys' Art Pad
Papers: Red - Kaisercraft 'Christmas Collections', Beige - Prima 'Romance Novel'
Sentiment: LOTV - 'Sentiments' Art Pad 8
Black Mirri Card - Handy Hippo

This really was an easy card to make as the image and sentiment were pre-printed, so just a case of mounting everything on black mirri card. I love the effect of the warm red paper... which is actually Christmas paper but think I have got away with it on this Birthday has little leaves and berries... but they aren't holly so could be used any time of year! :-))

We are sponsored by the wonderful Craftie Charlie

I hope you can pop on over to our main blog at Divas by Design and see the rest of the team's wonderful manly creations!!! :-))

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last card... I seem to be really enjoying doing vintage cards at the moment. I'm also feeling inspired to make some Spring themed cards... so hopefully I will find some time to squeeze them in.... we have had lots of lovely sunshine here in Manchester UK, which has been nice! it really makes you feel better in yourself.
Take Care and hope the rest of the week goes well for you! 
Love and hugs
