One In A Million

The theme over at Shopping Our Stash this week is black and white and one other colour. The aim of the challenge is to use some of the stash languishing at the bottom of our drawers. The backing papers I've used here are from the 7 Gypsies Paddington collection. I loved them, had to have them, then put them in the drawer with a million other sheets of 'had to haves' and never used them. Please tell me that it's not only me that does this. The ribbon has been in my stash for at least two years, but the Tim Holtz stamp is quite new. (Saying that the masking tape I used as the mask is at least 3 years old.) My steampunk guys have been masked and stamped, masked and stamped....
The card is for my Dad, I wanted to put 'One in a Million' on it but the card seemed finished as it was and I didn't want to spoil it, so that will go on the inside.
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp And Show challenge as this week the theme is Men - bless 'em - can't live with them, can't kill 'em all! - That's very un PC, how very dare I! :o)

Have a great weekend and thanks for looking x
