Cards for Men - Challenge 17 - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Everyone, well here we are at the start of another fortnight and already we have reached our 17th Challenge and this week is a real easy one that I know so many of you like to take part it in "Anthing Goes" and we are being sponsered by Claire of Hope Jacare.
And here is what Claire says about her company:-

I'm a SAHM with three young children. I trained in Textile Design at the Glasgw School of Art and I love all things handmade, but especially papercrafts.  I love to doodle ... and my doodles are available to purchase as digital images through Stitchy Bear Stamps.

And for this Challenge we have been fortunate to have been given several images to play with and I chose this one its called "Boat at Sea", and heres my card.
Ive printed the image onto white card before colouring it with my copic and tria pens, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Rectangle Die to cut it out, then drew around the die onto blue card and cut it out for the mount. The sentiment was made by using My Craft Studio graphics program then cut out with a circle die, Ive also cut out a larger one in blue card for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card and one of four papers from Kay Millers "Do you see what I sea" the first paper is a all over blue background then on top I have used three papers and my EK Success border punch on the papers and layered them up as different depths to the sea.  The mounted image was then positioned in the centre towards the top with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have stuck several fish buttons along the bottom and a shark on in the centre of the sentiment.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will go across to The Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented team have for your inspiration and Im sure they will give you ideas to create a card for this weeks "Anything Goes" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-

So nice to see a card for the guys with color and the kick of embellishments! The image and your coloring are wonderful, and I think the wavy patterned papers you've used really do give a fun feeling of movement and the fish - perfect. An all around enjoyable card!

Shirley, this is awesome! I love the colors, the image the card! The fact that it is also a great man-card (which always seem to be a more difficult challenge for everyone) makes it even more awesome!

Enjoy your week!
