And heres my Design Team card for this challenge
This time Ive used one of Phindy's images and printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used Nestabilitie label die No.1 to cut it out and then drew around the die to create the mount. The sentiment is one of the LOV circle stamps thats been stamped and cut out with a circle die.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card and one of three papers from the new Papermania "Woodland Babies" papers, the first a white base with lots of cute woodland images on, the second which Ive punched with my leaf all around punches from Marthat Stewart has been placed in the middle and the last paper another white based paper with trees and kites on, has been stuck in the top left hand corner.
I then arranged my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment at the bottom on the right, to finish of Ive stuck a kite and plane button at the top on the left hand side. I do so hope now that you will pop across to Cards for Men Blogspot  and see my fellow team members fabulous cards and Im sure they will inspire you to take part in this challenge

Tine said...

Hi there Shirley. What a fab card for a little cheeky chappie. LOL. The punch work goes brilliantly with your woodland theme. Thanks for joining us at Phindy's Place.
Tine :)
PS - the advice above is quite correct, as you have used one of Phindy's images, you just need to enter the card twice onto the challenge blog to double your chances of winning!
