Cards for Men - Challenge 19 - "Transport"

Oh my goodness its Cards for Men Challenge time again and here we are at number 19 I carnt believe how lucky we have been to have such fabulous support, and this time we had over 55 entries, and they were fabulous to say the least, I do so enjoy visiting you all and seeing your stunning creations, thank you so much for allowing me to see your work.
Anyway this fortnights challenge is "Transport" and we are being sponsered by
And they are giving the winner an absolutely fabulous prize:-

Arnt they stunning, and this is what our sponser say about themselves:-

These stamps are sold exclusively online at and at independent stamp and scrapbook stores worldwide. Please visit our website for a complete list of retail locations.

And this is my DT card for this Challenge:-
He reminds me so much of my brother-in-law an ageing hippy, anyway hes one of Karens Doodles and I think hes the right choice for my card, Ive printed him onto white card and coloured him with my copic pens, after which Ive cut him out with my Nestabilitie Label die No.8 then I draw around the die to create the mount for him, the sentiment is one of my stash ones though I think its by Penny Black, and this also has been cut out and mounted onto another piece of blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card with a first layer of blue card and one of two papers from the DVWC pad "All about Boys" set of design papers, the first one is a multi stripped one which I have used a border punch on, and the paper that Ive overlaid is a beige one, Ive also used a strip of this on top of the stripped on and a harlequin blue ribbon across the centre and attached it to the back of the base layer.
Ive then positioned my mounted image in the centre of this base layer and my sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have stuck four buttons at the two opposite corners, but before doing so Ive threaded some thin black ribbon through the holes and tied knots in them,
I do so hope that you will take part in our challenge, and do pop across to our blogspot and see the really stunning cards than my fellow Design Team members have created, they really are fabulous and hopefully it will encourage you to take part in this challenge and try and win the two sets of stamps that are on offer as this fortnights prize.
