A step back to the 20's

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

Feel like half of me is missing as my hard drive has had to go in for some repair and health check.
Using hubby's at the moment and oh dear it is soooooooo slow!

A male card to share with you today.

Kraftyhands Man about Town CD, the images remind me of the Al Capone era!
The doily and buttons are from Gone Artsy

Step by Step

1. Kraft card scored to create an A5 Landscape card.
2. First layer is navy blue card distressed with scissors and matted and layered at an angle.
3. Next layer are doilies cut and distressed with faded jeans.
4. Patterned card distressed with faded jeans and scissor before matting and layering onto card.
4. The image has also bee distressed with scissors and faded jeans.
5. To finish off I added the sentiment and buttons.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

613 Avenue Create #115 - Anything Goes
Scribble and Scrap #40 - Always Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge #97 - Anything Goes
