Good Afternoon!
 Been waiting for a phone call this morning so time to play.

Started this card Saturday morning! Hubby laughed went I {borrowed} his shaving lotion, nothing surprises him anymore when I making cards.  Used a Barbara Grey stencil, four different colours of distress reinkers mixed in the lotion....All dressed up stamps then three coats of embossing powder. Finally a shading of Stormy Sky distress ink to finish..Mount of papers from stash..I got the look from a magazine.
Perhaps mine has more colour, but, it's my first attempt next time will be better, now I know what I'm doing..
