Challenge #23 - Cards for Men - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Crafters, and happy Bonfire day to all those who are planning one today or later this week I hope the weather is kind to you, though the last weekend here has been extremely wet so no doubt the bonfire will have suffered. But back to todays Challenge, this fortnight we are being sponsored by:-

Kitty is offering a prize of :- £10 Gift Voucher

and this is what she says about her company:-

My Mums Craft Shop is a bricks & mortar and online store. We stock many of the leading brands and specialise in rubber stamping. We have brands including Some Odd Girl, Stamping Bella, My Favorite Things, CC Designs and many more. We also stock a large selection of Dienamics, Memory Box, Sizzix, CC Designs Marianne Dies. We constantly have new deliveries arriving, check out our website for more products - www.mymumscraftshop.co.uk

And the theme this time is a great favourite with everyone its "Anything Goes" so no excuse for getting out of this one, the only thing we ask is that the card is suitable for the male of the species so it can be for man or boy, and here is the card I made.


And the image I have used is a Saturated Canary one its called "Give Big Boy" and you will find it here, Ive printed him onto white card then used my favourite copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used Nestabilitie die No.8 to cut him out then used the metal die to draw around to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card and for my first mount I have used blue card and the papers are from Echo Parks "Boys Life" paper pad, the first a blue background with airplanes, balloons and flags on, and for my second I have used a red background with letters on, and the third yet another blue background with racing cards on.
The mounted image was then placed at an angle with the sentiment underneath in the bottom left hand corner. To finish of I have used a Whimsey Flag die to create the corner in the top right.
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 the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and then I hope you will also take part in this "Anything Goes" Challenge.
