Cards for Men - Challenge #7 - "April Fool"

Good Morning All, I hope your enjoying your Easter and have been given lots of love Easter Eggs, not sure I should accept them as Im trying to loose a bit of weight. Anyway as today is the 1st of April over at Cards for Men we are having a "April Fool" Challenge, and I think this Justinklines Image is ideal for my card.
Our Sponsor this time is Letreset.

and they are offering a fabulous prize of 
Flexmakers
And now for my card here it is.


As I said at the beginning of my post the image is from Justinklines and its called "April Fool", Ive printed him onto white card then used my promarkers to colour him, afterwards I used a rectangle Nestabilitie Die to cut him out, then used a blue inkpad around the edge. The mount was cut out of dark blue card and the sentiment was one I googled and then took into my Microsoft Office program to write it up and then printed it of and mounted it onto a piece of blue card to.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and the papers are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads and these ones are called "Just like Daddy" I have used two papers, the red one with dark spots on and a multi striped one for the other two mounts.
The mounted image was then placed in the center with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pop over to the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I do hope you will be inspired to join in this "April Fool" Challenge.
