Challenge #5 - Cards for Men - "Monochrome"

Good Morning Crafters I hope youve had a wonderful weekend well over at Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot the theme this week is "Monochrome" which means you are only allowed two colours on your card, the main one and one other, and the theme was chosen by Alan one of our Design Team members, and I know its a popular one so I do hope that you will take part in it as I long to see what you come up with. This time we are being sponsored by Digital Delights.

And they are offering a fabulous prize of

and here is what they say about themselves:-

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!! http://digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com/
And here is my card created with "Policeman Peyton"
and here is where you can purchase from. I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used my rotatrim to cut him out and a piece of blue card for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and the papers I chose to use are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads "Year of Firsts" paper set, a plain blue background and then the second and third mounts are a spot and housetooth pattern paper.
I have then used a stamp from my stash for the sentiment and placed that also onto a piece of blue card and this was placed in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your inspiration and take part in this "Monochrome" Challenge.
