I have made this quite plain but I think the black and greys are very suitable for a man and the quotation is very apt. I made a 5" x 7" card from pale grey cardstock then matted it with black and dark grey. The papers are Dovecraft "Charcoal Prints" which I have had for years and I must admit they seem to be my "go to" papers when I make cards for men. There are also some black and white florals in the pack too. I computer generated the sentiment and printed it onto pale grey card, although it looks white on the picture. I then diecut it with SB Labels 18 and used the largest die on black card to mat it. I raised the fishtail pennant and the Labels 18 with foam pads. I don't have the fishtail dies so I had to cut it myself. The 3D butterfly is a Fly Stickers from Hobbycraft, but again it doesn't show too well.. To finish off I added a few black pearls from my stash.
Hope you all have a happy and productive day, whatever you decide to do.
