Penny Black Saturday Challenge - One for the Guys

This week at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, the theme is:

'One for the Guys'

Perfect...with Father's Day next weekend here in the UK.

The prize for the lucky winner is this adorable stamp:


Generously donated by ex-PBSC DT member Carole.

I've used one of my oldest Penny Black stamps...'Fetching Slippers'...on my card...together with some doggy paper from the Max & Whisker's pad by BasicGrey. I distressed all of the edges using inks and scissors (still can't find my distressing tool...think I may have to admit defeat & buy another!), and added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I cut the lettering using my Cuttlebug 'Olivia' alphabet, and added a bone shape charm tied on to some string.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
