Challenge #17 - "Funny Birthday" - Cards for Men

Good Morning Crafters, I am really sorry I have been so poor in blogging lately but although I have been creating cards Ive not been able to post them as they were mainly for forthcoming Challenges but also I wanted to get them in the post quickly and didnt really have time to take a photo of them.
Anyway this fortnights Challenge over on Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot is "Funny Birthday" and we are being sponsored by QKR Stampede and to be absolutely honest I had never come across this company before and was really surprised at what fabulous images they have to offer.

And they are offering a fabulous prize of 5 digis of winners choice

and here is what they say about their company

 Do you have a sense of humor? Are you looking for a cute stamp? Then, we are the company for you! QKR Stampede is the somewhat cute somewhat quirky rubber and digital stamp company. We showcase the artwork of Ken Herrod, who had a unique, somewhat quirky style with lots of humor and character. You are sure to get a chuckle out of our stamps! We have been offering our unique stamps and supplies to the craft industry for over 15 years. At QKR Stampede our images are available as un-mounted, natural red rubber stamps OR as digital stamps! If QKR Stampede Stamps aren't exactly what you are looking for, don’t miss out on the sister companies: Eureka Stamps, Biblical Impressions Rubber Stamps, or the newest addition; Alluring Impressions.

And we were so lucky to be able to choose a image to play with and I chose this one for my brother-in-law as he does like his beer.

And this jolly chap is called "One over the Barrel" which is quite appropriate dont you think? Ive printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour it, and cut it out with a Nestabilitie die and mounted it onto a larger one in red. The sentiment is one I googled and then copied and printed it onto white card and mounted this on a piece of red card also.
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 Downloads and this set is called "Time stands still" and I have used four papers the first being a damask red paper, then on top are top papers on red mounted a check one and a plain brown one, then across the two is a blue and white pattern on.
Ive then placed my mounted image on top with the sentiment below on the right. Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot, and see what the rest of the very talented design team have created with this theme "Funny Birthday" for your inspiration,
This Card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
