Cards for Men - Challenge 18 - "G" if For"

Good Morning Everyone, yet another fortnight has flown by and weve reached our 18th Challenge and for this one we need you to use anything within the bounds of the letter "G" and Im sure with your imagination it wont be long before you find sometime that will fit the bill, it might be the colour green, or a sport beginning with the letter G, but it must be something for man or a boy, so I think you might have to put your thinking caps on for this one. Before I start I want to thank everyone who took part in our last challenge is was a great favourite and we had over 300 entrants and thats a record for sure.
But getting back today we are being sponsered by "Letreset" and you know what fabulous pens they are either the Promarkers, Aquamarkers and even the Tria ones are great favourites with all of us and they are offering a fabulous prize of Pen Set so I do hope that you will take part in this Challenge.

And here is what they say about themselves :-

ProMarkers are made by Letraset and are a twin tipped, dye based alcohol marker offering a high quality product at a great price. Avilable in 148 colours, they give incredible tonal range and can be applied to a diverse range of materials, not just paper and card. ProMarkers produce vivid, bright colours right through to the subtlest pastel shades - the translucent inks can also be overlaid and blended, even further extending the range of shades and hues on offer. ProMarker's quality nibs and inks provide flawless colour lay down with consistent coverage and no unsightly streaking.

And here is my card for this Challenge:-

As you can probably guess I have used this fabulous TeddyBo image of him playing golf, isnt he he gorgeous, love his plus fours, you will find him here. I have printed him onto white card then coloured him with my Tria Pens afterwards I used one of the Nestabilitie Circle dies to cut him out, and then drew around the die to create the mount for him. The sentiment is one I created with My Craft Studio and cut that out in the same way as the image and mounted this also onto a piece of green card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of green pearlescent card and one of three papers from the Kay Miller "Do you see what I sea" set of papers, the first one is a green stripe and on top is a blue check which has been mounted onto blue card and set at an angle, and the third is multi spot paper thats been mounted on yet more of the green card and stuck across the middle.
My mounted image was then positioned in the centre with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side and to finish of I have stuck two golf ball buttons down the right hand side at the top.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope it will give you some inspiration to try and make a card for this fortnights challenge of "G" is For" and that you will now go and see what the rest of the Design Team have created for your delight over on our "Cards for Men" Blogspot.
