Uncle Bernard's card

Good morning lovelies - hope you are all fine and well. I'm scheduling this post as I'm off to a stamping workshop in Preston today - its a stamping workshop using indigo blu stamps and its with Sarah McCrossen. Looking forward to it - will hopefully show you what we do later in the week.

Today I've got my uncle Bernard's card to show you - he's going to be 82 I think - anyway I've gone for something simple using the sketch from Here Come the Boys:



I made up a background using the free stamps from the current creativity magazine, cut some spellbinders cogs, some kraft and added a craftyemblies pennyfarthingand a creative expressions time piece. I think its up his street - but I feel there's something missing somehow! Nevermind - wanted to blog it anyway!!!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

herecometheboysblogchallenge: sketch

Hugs
