Ciào!

Hello!
Gosh it's getting cold ... here in Lincolnshire the wind is always very strong and it a cold wind that blows!
Still I'm enjoying the break and some girlie time with my Aunt

Today starts a new photo inspiration challenge at 
And this is your photo


Once again there is quite a bit to go on in this photo and you'll always find suggestions along with inspiration on the Papercraft Star blog 
The photo reminded me of The Cafe Rouge ... not sure if you know what that is but we have a few of them in the UK ... Here's a shot of one in Manchester


As you can see this one is right next to the Italian restaurant and my card this week has an Italian theme with the French colours

I overlaid a digital image of the "Ciào" which I bought at Etsy onto my paper - the BG paper is a large A4 picture so I scanned it into my computer to make it smaller for my card and to add the overlay


Can you see I used a couple of cogs from the MPD Time Pieces set too ... They are just so versatile and add a little something to a masculine card ... And this card is for a male friend of my husband


I'd love to see your interpretation of the photo so I hope you'll join us this week ...

Ciào for now!

What a great masculine card, I always struggle with men's, like the idea with the cogs. Deb x

Another perfect card for the inspiration photo, you are so very good at doing the overlays...and LOVE the ruffled gingham ribbon you have added. Now these pictures make me want to come and have a glass a wine or perhaps a latte' with you.

Beautiful and artsy card, Ros, I love your interpretation of the photo! Sorry about your cold and rainy day! It is hot and dry here, 95 to be exact was the high and still in the 80's now. I am looking forward to some cool weather! Have a fabulous Thursday!
