  1. Wow, Lynn! What a beautiful vintage/monochromatic card. I absolutely love it!

  2. love it fabulous male card - Maryann

  3. Love how you stamped directly onto the newsprint. This is a great masculine card, and the pocket watch seems so appropriate for the news carrier theme, as they always have to deliver in a very timely fashion.

  4. Your pocket watch looks so nice stamped directly on the newsprint. Great guy card, Lynn!

  5. What a lovely pocket watch and lovely card.

  6. What a fab Vintage look card with the pocket watch! Great guy card!

  7. Saw this on the challenge blog this morning! Absolutely stunning!! Perfect masculine design!!

  8. French newsprint - cool! I was looking at the Hero Arts Newspaper Eiffel Tower stamp in relation to a thread on SCS, and I just didn't get why they didn't use French print on it. Something like this would have much more appropriate. A great masculine card, I love that ef for clock-themed cards.

  9. Stunning! Love the background and of course the timepiece. A perfect embossing folder for this image.

  10. Wow Lynn, sensational card, love the newsprint!
