Shabby Thank You

 Just a quick card for this weeks challenge on Cute Card Thursday which is to use eyelets on your card. I wanted to make a more masculine card. Most of the males i know do not really like Edwin.. so i have picked the Brunte the horse and combined her with some rests of Basic Grey Bella Rose papers. Distressed everything heavily, added the eyelets and added some texture with some raffia Carole gave me. Sentiment is by Stampin up "Fresh Cuts".

Dont forget to take a look at the blog candy i have posted yesterday :-)

This posting is sheduled. Thank you ladies

Hi Claudia.... I love the MALE card using the eyelets. I don't make that many male cards either. Always seem harder to make. Yours is great! I like the lacing with the eyelets.
Hope your vacation is going great for your family. (getting a nice Florida tan?)
Take care..... big hugs!

GREAT idea to use eyelets this way instead of the usual four corners! I think even women would love to receive this card. I love the horse. It's so nice to see him used on a card other than the winter/Christmas cards!

Oh wow Claudia that horse is brilliant - you have coloured him so well I just want to go and stroke his gorgeous nose. Oh yeah like the rest of the card too - great use of the eyelets.
