Hi all today our new fortnightly challenge starts at
the theme is
Here is my card using an image and papers from the 1930's , the image reminds me a little of Paul Newman who was one of my many film idols from way back.
This is quite a simple card the base is a 6x6 Kraft card, I mounted both image and papers onto black card stock, I added punched corners to highlight the image added ribbon, card candy and a sentiment.
For some wonderful inspiration please visit the other DT their work is awesome.
I do hope that we get to see your cards/projects over the next two weeks so please come join us at

Lorraine I love this card, that image is so evocative of the 1930's and 1940's. It is the perfect inspiration for the Make it Manly challenge - really pleased that we will be continuing to work together on the design team at Ooh La La.
