Getting manly



Hi all and welcome to my second post (and last night, what seemed like my last post!) for Pile It On. Woo boy, I'm still not 100% with this card, but after 4 versions, 3 images printed out, too many paper scraps to count and 3 episodes of Downton Abbey, this is the finishes results. Of course, the fact that I was watching Downton Abbey may have had something to do with my general lack of crafiness! (I got season 1 from the library, and only have a week to watch the whole thing.)
Hopefully, your efforts with a manly card will go easier than mine! (Cause that's the challenge this week!) Come play along!
