Buy this man a beer

Couldn't sleep due to the heat so I was up early crafting away :-)

The craftymess challenge today was to make anything including the following things:

- gingham or checked paper/card
- a paper fold
- three brads
- a male themed sentiment

I started with a 6x6 card blank and matted and layered with black mirri board. I the made a black/grey gingham card and folder over on corner. On the plain corner that was folder I stamped 'just for you' to cover it.
I stamped an image from personal impressions using versafine ink pad in black and matted and layered with the same black and gingham card.
The sentiment was a cheap stamp from 'home bargains' and that was stamped with the same ink and matted and layered on the same papers.
Finished off with three card candi black spotted brads to add a different contrasting pattern and glossy accented the beer mug on the image.

I have kept it back and white as I love the simplistic look to the card.

Hope you like it :-)
