Cards for Men - Challenge #6 - "Cheeky Chappies"

Good Morning Everyone, hope you had a fabulous weekend and now I want to invite you to take part in this fortnights challenge "Cheeky Chappies" over on Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot. We are being sponsered this time by Buggaboo and they are offering you a prize of 7 digi images of your own choice.



And this is what they say about their company:-

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.

And we were lucky to have been given several images to play with and I chose this one.


Isnt he a character I love the look on his face, I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him and then cut him out with my Nestabilitie Rectangle die and then cut a larger one for the mount out of red card. The sentiment was one I created on my computer and printed it out and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, and the three papers Ive used are from the Nitwit Downloads "Super Stewy" paper set, the papers where cut across the middle and Ive used a piece and then one of my border punches and tucked it behind the check paper. Its a simple design and I then positioned my mounted image in the middle with the sentiment underneath.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop across to the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot to see what the rest of the very talented team have created for your inspiration and I do hope that you will also take part in this "Cheeky Chappie" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
