I need a hero

Hello all - hope you are well. Today's card is actually nicer in real life, after much dangling out of the back door, darting in and out trying to snap a decent picture of it I had to admit defeat. It has been tipping down here for the last three days :C hence the dark photo. It was inspired by a recent sketch I saw and now can't find sorry.

Anyhoo lately I have been trying to use my lovely stash to make more male cards and although the paper on this card is called Ski slope, I think this particular page can be used for anything and the colour is so beautiful, hope you like it :D

Have a great day & see you tomorrow xx
