Cards for Men Challenge Ten - "Outdoors"

Well what a fantastic response we are getting for our Challenges and I want to thank all you lovely girls and man who are regulars, its such a pleasure visiting your creations on a theme and seeing what fabulous differences so many of us can create. Anyway this fortnights challenge is being sponser by
Claire of Hope Jacare and she is offering 5 of her digi stamps as a prize. She now has a fabulous new website Stitchy Bear Stamps as well as her old website Shop Handmade so I hope that you will pop over there and see what fabulous designs Claire has to offer, and heres what she says about herself and company:-
"Im a SAHM with three young children. I trained in Textile Design at the Glasgow School of Art
 and I love all things handmade, especially papercrafts. I love to Doodle.....and my doodles are available to purchase as digital images throught Shop Handmade."
This is the free digi image that Claire has given you and I to use for this challenge, though it isnt compulsary, but it is a gorgeous image dont you agree? But please if you do use it please credit Claire with the copyright of it.
This fortnights challenge is to create a card with the theme of "Outside" and this is my interpretation with this lovely Skateboarder image from Claire's shop.
Ive coloured my image with my copic pens and cut it out with my rotatrim, after which Ive used some red ink to distress the edges. The image was then mounted onto a piece of red card. The sentiment is one of my craft stash, and I believe its one of Janets Pink Gem ones, this was also mounted onto a piece of red card which had been put through my cuttlebug and one of the double ended tag dies.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card and my first layer is another piece of the same red card, and on top of this I have put two triangle pieces of paper from the Moxxie Skateboard Set, and along the seam Ive stuck a piece of tartan ribbon to disguise it. The image was then mounted in the center and my sentiment was stuck with brads to the bottom on the right hand side.
Please pop across to the Cards for Men Challenge Site and discover what my fellow DT members have created for this Challenge you will find some fabulous creations there.
