Cards for Men - Challenge 24 - "Fancy Folds"

Good Morning Everyone, yes another fortnight has flown by and we have now reached our twenty fourth Challenge for Cards for Men, and this time we want to see your "Fancy Folds" and there are certainly a lot to choose from so I will leave your choice up to you.
This time we are being sponsored by a new company and that is "Whimsie Doodles"
And here is what Melyssa says about her Company :-

Whimsie Doodles is so excited to be sponsoring the new challenge! In March of 2009 Melyssa Connolly, artist and owner, began turning her whimsical hand-drawn images into digital files for sale online. Whimsie Doodles' digital stamp line features images that range from cute little boys and girls, to punny stuff, and everything in-between. We enjoy sharing lots of samples on our company blog, where we also post challenges and tutorials.

And they are offering as a prize a $10 Gift Certificate to spend on their Website.

We were lucky enough to be given several gorgeous images to play with and I chose these ones for my DT Card.
The little lad is called "Hoodie Jayson" and I thought that the sentiment went quite well with him so I chose to use that to, the acutal card shape is one that I invented myself its a sort of triple fold and its based around a 6"x 6" card base, the papers I used are Papermania's "For Him" paper pad.
The main image was printed onto white card and I then coloured him with my copics and tria pens, then I used the large Rectangle Nestabilitie Die to cut him out, and then drew around the die onto blue card to create the mount for him.  The sentiment was done in the same way. The last flourish is the computer button that was attached to the middle fold.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop across to the Cards for Men Blogspot and see what the rest of my fellow Design Team Members have created with this "Fancy Folds" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
