More Challenge Combining!

Wow, I'm totally on a roll with this challenge combining! I've managed to incorporate Colour Create where the theme is 'Blue and Brown' and also, Penny Black Saturday where the challenge is to include 'Something to Eat'.

I'm really pleased with this card as not only have I managed to combine 2 challenges, I also made a MALE card! Yup, no pink or frills or girlie images in sight! What's more, this is the first ever time that I have been able to enter the PB challenge as I don't have any PB stamps of my own and any I receive in swaps, I tend to be unable to colour properly. No idea why but I find them seriously hard to colour, no matter what medium I use. But, I think this one is coloured OK.......!
Goodie List........
Stamps: Penny Black from image swap, Elzybells sentiment.
Paper: Dovecraft Masculine DP pack, Core'dinations cardstock.
Ink & Colour: Memento (Tuxedo Black) and Copics.
Embellishments: Liquid applique, scalloped rectangular Nestie, button and macrame cord from stash.

Upon popular request, you may also notice that I updated my profile pic to take into account my new hair. It's not a great picture of it though as it is much more choppy than this in reality but it gives you an idea. This pic was also taken 14 hours after my make-up went on so I promise I look a little less knackered than this in real life!
