Heres my card for the Challenge, Ive used one Phindy's Designs from for my card, this little lad seems to trying to copy his dad, lets hope he doesnt get into any trouble.
Ive printed him onto white card and then used my copic pens to colour him, Ive then used my Nestabilitie Die No.12 to cut him out, after which Ive drawn around the die edge onto blue card to create a mount for him. The sentiment is one from my craft stash, this was mounted onto a double ended tag, another of the Nestabilite die cuts.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of dark blue card, on top of this I have used two papers from the Male papers from Papermania, the first one is a blue background with stars on, on top of this I have layered up another of the papers but along both the edges Ive used a dinosaur border punch from EK, this was stuck down the centre then on top of this Ive stuck my mounted image. The sentiment was then positioned at the botton on the right and fixed to the base layer with two tool brads. To finish of Ive stuck three tool buttons down the left hand side.
Before I finish I want to wish a very hearty welcome to five new Design Team members to our Cards for Men team, they are Kym, Mandy, Rainmac, Kitty, Alison and also Issy who Ive not mentioned before shes only been with us for a short time but Im sure that all of you girls will be a great asset to our Team Leader Donna especially as Im going to be out of action from the 23rd July for about three weeks.  So I sincerely hope that you will all pop across to our Challenge blog and see what fabulous and fantastic creations these girls have made for you, Im sure it will inspire you and hopefully you will also take part in the challenge. 
Im also going to enter it into the following challenges:-
