Cards fpr Men - Challenge Twenty - "Sports"

Good Morning All, well another fortnight has flown by and here we are at our Twentieth Challenge and this time we want to see lots of "Sports" images on your cards, and we are being for the first time  sponsered by "Peachy Keen Stamps"

And here is what they say about themselves:

Our stamps are made with the highest quality polymer on the market today, giving them their unique peach tint. The whimsical images designed by Kathy Jakopovich coupled with their durability make them a favorite amongst scrapbookers, card makers, and artists alike. 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 they have offered you a prize of  $25. to spend in their Webshop.

And now here is my card for this Challenge.

I have used one of their fabulous stamps titled "Surf Boy" for my card and stamped him onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour him, afterwards I used Labels 11 to cut him out and used the die again to draw around to create the mount our of yellow card. The sentiment is one of the TLC digi stamps and this has been treated in the same way as the stamped him.
The base easel card is a 6"x 6" white card and I have used for the first mounts yellow card and then two papers each from the Nitwits "Summer Breeze" digi paper sets, the first paper is a yellow one, and then on top a blue sentment one which has been cut in a 5" square and then Ive used the Martha Stewart border and corner seashell punch on it. The stamped image was then positioned in the middle of one and the sentiment on the other, I then used some rafia in yellow and blue to wrap around the two main mounts and attached them to the back.
The card was then created into an easel and then along the bottom of both I have stuck some sea shells just to give it a different effect. Now that youve seen my card I sincerely hope that you will go and visit The Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of a very talented team have created for your inspiration and hopefully it will get you to take part in this "Sports" Challenge..
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
