Challenge #2 - Cards for Men - "Boys and their Toys"

Good Morning Everyone, well the first two weeks of this year have already gone by and weve now reached our second Challenge for this one we are being sponsered by Claire of Hope Jacare, and the theme for this is "Boys and their Toys".


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 Claire is offering 3 digi images as a prize, and here is my card Ive created for this Challenge
 Ive printed "Rafe robot" onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, then used Nestabilitie Labels Die No.10 to cut him out then used the die itself to draw around to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one I created on my computer and then printed it and mounted it onto a piece of dark blue card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark blue card and one the papers from Bo Bunny's "Blast Off" papers, this one has spacemen and stars all over it, on top I have used a star Nestabilitie die to create several different sized stars that were arranged around the this first paper then positioned my mounted image in the centre with the sentiment on the left hand side at the bottom.
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 Design Team have got for you and maybe it will  inspire you to take part in this "Boys and their Toys" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
