Speaking Professionally

The challenge this week from Daring Cardmakers is "Speaking Professionally", so I dusted off the Crafters Companion Occupations CD and looked for inspiration and came up with:

The image is a pyramage image of a farmer which I have edged with a gold peel off (not that you can see it in the picture), layered onto brown card which I have then cut with deckel edge scissors and edged with a gold pen (see previous comment about the photo).

The background is printed from the same CD and then cut with my new punch around the page Martha Stewart punch. Oops, been shopping again!

A bit of ribbon, some gems and a peel off sentiment, also on the brown card, cut with the deckel scissors and edged with a gold pen to finish off.

As my dh and his mate from Staffordshire would say "Jobs a good un!".
