Challenge #8 - Cards for Men - "Anything Goes"

Good Morning Crafters, well yet another fortnight has flown by over on the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and this weeks Challenge is one that is a real favourite with us all and for this one providing you create a card for Men you are free to choose any design you like. We also have a Design Team Call on as well so if your interested dont forget to put DT after your name when leaving your card.
For this Challenge we are being sponsored by "Squidgi Digi" 

And they are offering you 4 digi's of winners choice

and here is what they say about their company :-

Hi my name is Beth, I am 19 years old and am studying a Degree in illustration at Blackpool University.
I started drawing images for my Mum , who made cards with them and then she put them on her blog . She got lots of great comments and people saying i should sell them - so here we are!
I hope you enjoy my images and would love to see any creations you make with them.

We were lucky enough to be given several images to chose from and I picked this one for my Card.
I printed the image onto Kraft card then used my Lyra Polychrome Pencils to colour it, afterwards I used my rotatrim to cut it to size, I then placed it onto a piece of brown card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first layer of brown card and I then used a "Go Kraft" printed digi paper from Sweethshoppe Digi Downloads for my first mount and then placed my mounted image in the center.
I then used some of the brown paper and Britainnia sentiment dies to create the Happy Birthday at the bottom which was stuck on the slant.
Now that youve seen my Card I do hope that you will go and visit the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot, and see for yourself what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this fortnights "Anything Goes" Challenge.
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
