Cards for Men - Challenge 5 - "Sketch"

Good Morning, yet another fortnight has flown by and we have reached our fifth Challenge at Cards for Men, and for this one we have a sketch for you to follow:-


And we are being sponsered this time by Digital Delights,


And they are very generously offering a $5. Gift Voucher to spend in on their website.


And here is what they say about their company:-

Welcome to Digital Delights, a magical place filled with my little digi creations from all walks of life. We have a wide range of digital stamps which are delivered straight to your email 24/7!!

And we were lucky enough to be given several images to play with and I chose this cheeky "Fireman" for my card and here it is.


Ive printed the image onto white card then used my copic's to colour it, and cut it out with the Nestabilitie Rectangle Die, and then used a larger one for the mount. I then used a pen to create a stitched edge on it. The sentiment was created on the computer and printed out and mounted in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 7"x 5" white card with a first mount of red card, the papers I have used are from the Papermania "For Men" paper set, the first one being a red patterned paper then on top is a check on. I then positioned my mounted in the centre and the sentiment below. To finish of Ive used three red buttons with some bakers twine threaded through the holes and tied in a knot.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of a very talented team have created for you and hopefully it will inspire you to take part in the "Sketch" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
