Blue Car, Grey Day

Hello.  Welcome.  I think Autumn has arrived.  A little sun today but mostly grey and wet and damp.  It's starting to feel like the year is closing in.  I hope we aren't going to get frost any time soon, but you never know.  Got to keep an eye on the big pumpkin that will be the star of my harvest festival at the end of October.  Wouldn't want him to get frosty.  

Been working on a manly make.  Not always the easiest but I combined the picture inspiration over at Korthobby, the sketch from YNS and the theme of manly cards with navy over at Mark's Finest Papers.  I think they go very well together......

Both the greeting and the car are Kort og Godt stamps stamped using ColorBox Arctic Deep chalk.  I used a navy card as the base and added cut panels from DoCrafts Wellington and Chronology pp collections.  I added a ribbon and some metal charms from Korthobby.  I think these have been discontinued which is a pity cos they make really nice accents on male cards.  I am hoarding my last few.  The sentiment translates as big and warm congratulations.  Sounds better in Norwegian!!  Or maybe my English is getting rusty ROFL.
