Challenge #12 - Cards for Men - "Boys will be Boys"

Good Morning Crafters, oh wow dont these weeks go quickly, here we are at our 12th Challenge over on Cards for Men, and this week we are being sponsored by my other Design Team Sponsor The Paper Shelter,


And they are offering a fabulous prize of $20. Gift Certificate
and here is what they say about themselves:-


If you are looking for fun, cute and lovely digi stamps for your paper-crafting or web design projects, The Paper Shelter is your one-stop boutique! This growing catalog of high-quality digi stamps with many different kind of options offers a multitude of themes such as everyday items, holidays, special occasions, children, adorable characters and creatures. Stamps are available in standard black and white line art, as well as in pre-colored format.Images are wonderful for coloring and make perfect additions to greeting cards and scrapbook albums.

And being that Im lucky to have all the images I was able to choose one I felt was just right for this Challenge and heres my card.


I have used "Soccer Star" for my image and you will find him here, I have printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterward I used my rotatrim to cut him out and some green card for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green card and the paper is actually part of the digi set and you will find it here. I have used this as my base and then stuck my mounted image at the top in the center and the sentiment is one from my stash and has been then cut out with a circle Nestabilitie Die and mounted on a larger one for the mount.
To finish of I have used some football buttons and a boot and flash these were placed around the card in the corners.
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 Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you will want to take part in this "Boys will be Boys" Challenge. We also have several new girls who have joined us and Im sure you will also want to see what theyve come up with.
