Challenge #9 - Cards for Men - "Animals"

Good Morning Crafters, I hope youve all had a wonderful weekend and are ready to take part in this fortnights Challenge over on Cards for Men, and this one is all about "Animals" and we are being sponsored by "Paper Pretties" this is a new one to us and here is, and this is what they say about themselves:-


Pretties is an online crafting store, and home to Zac, Lily, Sophia and Cooper - the cutest kid stamps around! (At least we think so). We have many exclusive stamp lines, from elegant to whimsical, sweet to clever; there is something for every stamper in our Pretties' Boutique.

Along with our full line of high quality clear stamps, we also have a large selection of digital images. 

not sure what the prize is so please see on the Cards for Men

 And we were lucky enough to be given images to play with and I chose this one,

and here is called "Paulie the Guitarist" and you will find him here and I have printed him onto white card then coloured him with copic pens, then I cut him our with my rotatrim and layered him up on a piece of red card. The sentiment came with him and I chose this one for my image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of red card, the papers I have used are from Sweetshoppe Digi Papers this set is called "Circus Burst" and I have used several of the papers the first one is a white background with a multi coloured stripes on, the second and third papers I have cut a corner and used on of my Martha Stewart Border punches on it, then placed them in the bottom right hand corner.
The mounted image was then placed in the top left hand corner and put the sentiment across the bottom right hand corner, and I have used a Dienamics "Rock Star" set of dies to create the flames, stars and the guitar and these have been placed all over the card.
Now that you have seen my card I do hope that you will go and pay a visit to 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 will want to take part in this "Animals" Challenge.
