Masculine "Get Well" Card

My Mum was hunting for a nice Get Well card for a friend of hers but was struggling to find one that wasn't too girly! It was for a man who is ex-RAF so I instantly thought of this digi stamp which I was lucky enough to win from Stitchy Bear some time ago.

It had to be a quick one, so I cut 3 strips of co-ordinating papers from the DCWV Latte stack, using a corner punch to take off the 2 opposite corners and layered everything up, I then stamped the Get Well sentiment using Brilliance Starlight Black ink.

I'm quite happy with the result for a quick male card. Hope it cheers the recipient up a little :o)

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Cute Card Thursday - Winged Things
Penny's - Anything Goes
Creative Card Crew - Masculine
The Paper Shelter - Add a Sentiment
Simons Says Stamp - 3 Different Papers
Dream Valley - Just for Men
Allsorts - Anything Goes

This is a great card!! :) the image is perfect (my Grandad's ex-RAF and he'd love it!) and I love the colours... another problem with most Get Well cards is that they can be so bright!!
Thanks for joining us at Dream Valley this fortnight!! :)
hugs, Rachel x
