Rusty Old Car - Simon Says Stamp DT

Hello lovely peeps,
Apologies for my little blog being neglected for a few days, I was unable to finish my DT card which was due at the weekend as I've been in a lot of pain & needed to rest.
Today is new challenge day at
& this week our challenge is

My lovely teamies & I are featuring Basic Grey products on our cards this week, if you have any we'd love to see them but as always it's not compulsory to enter our challenge :) 

 I confess I used to buy male cards long after I'd started making cards as I really didn't like making them but I don't mind making them at all now, actually they are a whole lot easier to make than the way I make girlie cards as it doesn't take me hours to fiddle & faff around with embellies lol.
 This little card will be popped in my Etsy Shop later.
The Copic colours I've used are -
Car - B41, B000, B0000 / E18, E15, E11 / C3, C1, C00 / N7, N5, N3, birds - B41, B000, B0000 / E53, E51, E50 / R12, signpost - W4, W2, W0, grass - YG95, YG93, YG91

    Think you've made a great card! Real masculin. Indeed, male cards aren't anyone's favs because you can't go crazy with the embellies, but they take so little time because of that, ...
