Anyway this fortnights Challenge over on Cards for Men is a "String it Up" one and this is all about putting bakers twine or string on your cards, I know it was very popular a few months ago so Im sure you will be able to dig it out of your stash and then add it to your card.
This time we are being sponsored by Digital Delights
And they are offering a fabulous prize of : $5 Gift Voucher

Welcome to Digital Delights, a magical place filled with my little digi creations from all walks of life. We have a wide range of digital stamps which are delivered straight to your email 24/7!! http://digitaldelightsbyloubyloo.com/
And here is what I made for this Challenge:-
For my card I used "Casey goes Fishing" this is a old image for Digital Delights but Im sure some of you might still have it in your library so I cant give you a link to it. I have printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour her, afterwards I used my rotatrim to cut him out and then created a mounted from blue card. The sentiment is one from the Digi Paper Set that I used for my card.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card, and the papers as I said are digital ones and they are from Sweetshoppe "Hook, Line and Sinker" paper set, the first is a blue background with fish all over it, the second is a beige one and I have cut a strip and then used a EK success border punch on it, and the third paper is a stripped one which has been stuck to a blue mount and then around it I have wrapped some bakers twine around it I then tied a knot at the top.
I have placed the mounted image in the center and the mounted sentiment at the bottom on the right.
To finish of I have used two fish buttons and I have threaded more of the bakers twine through the holes and tied a not in the ends, then used a coat and fishing rod buttons below these, and then in the opposite corner I have placed a basket button.
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 for your inspiration and hopefully you to will take part in this "String it Up" Challenge.
