And now here is the card I made for this Challenge.

For the image I decided to use this gorgeous penquin from Mo's Digital Pencil, and have coloured him with my copic's then used my rotatrim to cut him out, and the mount also. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and the papers is from Donna of Bearlymine designs Christmas digi paper set, its got lots of candy canes on it. The down the side I have used a further piece of the same blue card and ran it through my cuttlebug with a snowflake design on it.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented design team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you also will want to take part in this "Christmas in July" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
