Retro Cars

Good morning to all my lovely friends and  followers. I hope your week is going well and  you are doing some nice things.
My post today is Retro Cars and  I've made it to launch our new challenge over at  Crafty Ribbons The theme this fortnight is Cards for the Men. I know this is not always popular but I find once I get started I quite enjoy making them. This challenge will give you the opportunity to make a male card and maybe win the great prize we always have from The Crafty Ribbons Store.

Card Recipe

7x7 Blank Card
Tan paper is from an old Docrafts pad
Kraft card is Crafter's Companion 
Turquoise card is Tim Holtz
Jumbo Ric Rac to form the border and the Retro Cars Ribbon are both from Crafty Ribbons Store
Twine from my Stash
Car charm from Whitby Crafts
Topstitch thread and sewing machine .
Metal Cogs from Michael's Florida
The Retro ribbon panels are on a strip and I cut them into panels and stitched to the card squares

Well I hope you find time to pop over and enter this challenge it runs until the 10th June so plenty time to get crafting those men cards
Enjoy the rest of your week hugs Carole x
