Cards for Men - Challenge #10 - "Fancy Folds"

Good Morning Crafters, well yet another week has started and this fortnights challenge over on Cards for Men is all about "Fancy Folds" and this means a card with lots of folds or a folded design and must be for a man and we are being sponsored this time by Donna husbands "Scribbled Kidz" and these are all images created by her husband and obviously they are mostly of their three boys and the antics they get up to.


The prize they are offering is prize of :-

And here is what they say about their company:-

Scribbled Kidz has been inspired by our three little lads, the antics they get up to etc.  We've tried to capture some of them in the digital images you can download and use in your card making or other image based activities.

Please browser the site and add some images to your basket.  You could also email us some suggestions for future images or things you'd like to see.

Thanks for looking, hope you find this resource useful
.
 
We were lucky enough to be given a couple of images to play with and I chose this one for my card.
 
 
I have printed the image of "Birthday Boy" onto white card then coloured it with my copic pens, afterwards used the curved rectangle die from Nestabilitie Dies and used a larger one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 9" white card, on the larger one I have used a dark blue mount and one of three papers from the Sweetshoppe "Birthday Boy" digi paper set, the first is a sentiment one, and then for my second paper I have used a red one with yellow stars on, the third is a balloon design on a black background I have also used it on the other smaller fold on the side.
I then placed my mounted image in the middle and the sentiment is from Stampin up crossword stamp and this was then placed in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve seen my card I 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 hopefully you to will take part in this "Fancy Folds" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
