Clean & Simple sketch #122 & something different!

Afternoon! I've just popped on to make a quick post for these cards I've made, the first is this simple men's card using this weeks Clean & Simple sketch, a great one for using up little scraps. It's also for this weeks Winter Wonderland which is Dotty (and not Christmas for now!) and also for this weeks Top Tip Tuesday which is Anything Goes.

Papers - 'He's a Jolly Good Fellow' from Sweet Shoppe
Sentiment - Paula Pascual
Stars - Dovecraft & Woodware punches
Border - EK Success punch

And this is the extra card. It's a bit of a different one but before Christmas, one of my mum's colleagues asked me to make a Christmas card for her to put on her dads grave, she asked for it to feature a wolf and a rose, I'm not too sure why! But I forgot to photo it, anyway, she was really pleased and has asked me to make one for his birthday too, this time to feature black roses if possible, so here it is! I found the image on Google and the paper is a digi one I've got somewhere which I printed in black and white. Thanks for stopping by!

Image - Google (I think from the WWF website)
Paper & ribbon - stash
Gems - PaperMania
Sentiment - printed in 'Bleeding Cowboys' font
