Challenge #155 - "For the Boys"- The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Crafters, do you know Ive done it again, Ive forgotten to get my own card scheduled for this weeks Challenge over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot, I suspect it had to do with the busy Easter weekend and Ive got a bit behind, anyway Ive now got around to doing my own post and I do hope you all had a fabulous weekend even if the weather wasnt as kind as it has been in the last couple of weeks, and last night we had a rare old thunderstorm to finish it, and today its cloudy and wet so I suppose we will have to say a goodbye to the fabulous sunny weather we have been experiencing of late.
This weeks theme over on The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot is "For the Boys" and that means we want to see a card with a boy/male influence and Im sure that you can create card to follow it and as always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30 to spend on their website.

And of course this means that you must have used one of the products on your card and that could be either a image, backing paper or printable but even if you havent they will still offer you 3 digi images of your own choice. And I do urge you to go and pay a visit to their fabulous website The Paper Shelter and browse and see for yourself what stunning things that are on offer and you will be also surprised at how much they are value for money and in these days thats what matters when you are shopping around.
And now I want to show you what I have been making for this Challenge.


I have used this gorgeous "My Cute Rottweiler" and you will find it here, I have acutally used the pre-coloured image and background for my card, I printed two of the image itself and cut it out completely.
The background was then mounted onto brown card and I then wrapped a piece of dog themed ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount. I then placed my cut out image on top with some silicone glue.
I also googled a sentiment and printed this onto a piece of white card and cut and mounted it and placed it in the left hand corner, and the final flourish is the dog kennel button stuck in the top right hand corner.
I do hope now that youve seen my card you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this weeks "For the Boys" theme Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
