Cards for Men - Challenge 19 - "Anything but Square"

Good Morning to Everyone, well yet another fortnight has flown by and weve now reached our 19th Challenge and this time we want "Anything but Square" so youd better get your thinking caps on deciding what you are going to make, and we are being sponsered this time by Pixie Dust Studio.  And they are offering 2 digi's of Winners Own Choice.


And here is what they say about themselves:-

PixieDust Studio is a land, full of fairies, trolls, Glitter Bugs, Royal Frogs and MORE..look out, you might find everything you ever wanted or something that you did not even know you were looking for! The STUDIO is full of creative and fun digital stamps created by illustrator Kathy Fronczak.

And Kathy generously gave us some fabulous images to play with and here is my choice:-


This image is titled "Boy in a Boat" isnt he gorgeous, I printed him onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour him, then decided that I would create a boat shape and cut him out ready to put him on my card and mounted him onto some dark blue card to.
The base card is really a 6"x 6" but has been cut into the appropriate shape, for my first mount Ive used dark card with two papers from Kay Millers "Do you see what I Sea" digi papers, these were cut in halve and stuck to the mount with a grosgrain ribbon along the seam. The sentiment is one from my stash and this was mounted on a tag and Ive threaded a bit more of the same grosgrain ribbon through the hole. I then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment just tucked under one of the corners and a sailboat was then stuck on top of the ribbon. Ive also stuck a scull and crossbones button on the mast and a anchor at the bottom on the left hand side.
I do hope that now youve seen my card you will go across to the Cards for Men Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and Im sure this will encourage you to take part in this fortnights "Anything but a Square" card Challenge.

What a super shaped card Shirley love the paper at the bottom which looks like the waves of the sea and that is one fab, fun image, the charm at the top is an excellent touch. I have been looking at the pictures of your little doggy in the sidebar, she is beautiful.
