Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week the challenge is about the gents!  You can be inspired by your gentlemen stamps, dies or ephemera or create a card for a gentleman.  Have fun!

 The Industrialist has been in my collection of new stamps and I thought perfect for this challenge.
I pulled out some masculine colors using a lovely green and a deep navy to contrast and create my background.

I die cut the globe and added coordinating colors.  I stamped a little sentiment over the background and assembled the card.

The industrialist needed something to hold and I fashioned him a little wreath.   I finished it all off with a splattering of white paint.

Products: Stampers Anonymous - Industrialist, Heidi Swapp - Citron, Navy, Memento Paris Dusk, Sizzix Thinlits - Globe Die, Tim Holtz Layering Stencil - Christmas, Ranger Paint Dabber - Glacier, Ribbon, Holly Trim, Hero Arts - Bling Red, Sizzix Alphabet Thinlits Dies, Chipboard, Stampendous Encrusted Jewel Kit
