Bearlymine's Third Challenge - "A Card for Man or Boy"

Well we have had another fabulous response to our second Challenge and this time our entries were over fifty, I do hope with this next challenge it will get an even bigger response as we are being sponsered by "Whimsey Stamps" and our host for this Challenge is Vix and I do hope you will pop over to her blog and see her stunning work.
There are some fabulous prizes on offer this time:-

And the theme for this fortnights Challenge is "A Card for Man or Boy" and Ive used this cute image from Whimsey Stamps called "Muddle Puddle Boy"
doesnt he look as if hes having great fun, and thats why I created the sentiment on my computer for it. The image was printed onto white card and then coloured with my copic pens, I then cut it out with my rotatrim and mounted it onto a piece of blue pearlescent card also cut in the same way. Ive used some Glossy Accents for the puddle.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with three papers from Donna's Bealymine Designs they came from her Extreme Designer Cd.1 and the papers are in blue, the first is a blue dot and stripe pattern on top Ive used a blue plaid and the third is a yellow comma design on a blue background. The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the sentiment below on the right hand side.
Now youve seen what Ive created please do pop over to the Bearlymine Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of my team members have created for you, you will be amazed at how fabulous their work is. Dont forget this is a fortnightly challenge and will finish on the 14th February.
I also want to bring to your attention that Donna has some fabulous new Design Papers due out today and she is offering you a Discount which allows you to 15% off your total payment and that is NF10
I do so hope you will pop across to her website and see for yourself how gorgeous they are, heres a preview of them. And dont forget to mention the code to get your discount when emailing your order to Donna, but dont leave it to long as the offer finishes on the 7th February.
