Challenge #13 - Cards for Men - "Lets get Sporty"

Good Morning Crafters, I hope youve all have a wonderful weekend, well at least I hope the weather didnt stop you doing whatever you wanted to. Im so hoping it will soon improve as in a weeks time we are of to Cornwall for a few days holiday and Im so hoping it will be dry and sunny, keep your fingers crossed for me.
Well this fortnight over on Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot we are having another Sporty week at least for me it is, its "Lets get Sporty" theme and I thought as I had already done a football one for the last challenge Id have a change hope you approve.
This fortnights Challenge is being sponsored by That Craft Place

and here is what they say about themselves :-

We stock most leading Brands  and have a huge collection of rubber stamp's, Saturated Canary, Kraftin Kimmie, My Craft Sentiments, Crafter's companion, Indigo Blue, My Favorite Things, CC Designs to name a few . We also stock a large selection of Die's Memory Box, Sizzix, Spellbinder's, Cherrylyn, Marianne Dies. We  have new deliveries arriving each day.

And now I want to show you my card:-

I used this surfer boy from Magnolia and stamped him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I cut him out with a rectangle die from Nestabilities and a larger one for the mount with some blue card. The sentiment is 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, the papers I have used are from Echo Parks "Paradise Beach" paper pad, the first a sea and foam paper and the second full of surf boards and shell and I have cut a strip and used my border punch on it, on top of this is a red paper thats been mounted on another piece of blue card.
The mounted image was then placed on top towards the left with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. I then used some of the left over card and two Marianne shell dies to create the shells down the left hand side, I also put some yellow stickles on them to give the look of sand.
Now that you've seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "Lets be Sporty" Challenge.
