Challenge #19 - Cards for Men - "Going Digital"

Wow its been awhile since we had a challenge over at Cards for Men, weve been taking a summer break to give us time to recoup ourselves and to spend a bit of time with our families, but now they are back at School again we thought it was high time we got ourselves into gear and started the Challenge blog again so for this fortnight we are being sponsored by The Stamping Boutique


And they are offering you a prize of 3 digi images of your own choice, and here is what they say about themselves:-

I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor 2 Sketches 4 You. My store has been open since September 2009.I am currently a stamp artist for UnityStampCo. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.
"The Stamping Boutique" is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality,as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week.

And we were lucky enough to receive a couple of images to play with and I chose this one for my card.


I have used this fabulous desk image and coloured it with my copic pens, then cut it out with my rotatrim, and created a mount with some brown card, the sentiment is one I created on my computer and printed it and mounted it in the same way as the image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of brown card and the papers are from Sweetshoppe Digi Downloads and its called "School Rules", I have used three different ones and layered them up on some more brown card. To finish of I have used a couple of pencil buttons in opposite corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and take part in this fortnights "Going Digital" Challenge.
