Challenge #223 - "For the Man in your life" - The Paper Shelter

Good Morning Paper Shelter Followers, well another week has gone by and its now the A Teams time to host a Challenge and this time we want you to create a card "For the Man in Your Life" and that could be either or any of the men, boys, hubby, son, grandson, granddad and even nephews in you life, for me it meant creating a special birthday card for one of my grandsons whos really interested in cooking, whether he will take it as his future employment only time will tell
Anyway as always our sponsors are Veronica and Pedro of The Paper Shelter, and they are offering a fabulous prize of $30. to spend on their website


But this is always providing you have used one of their products on your card and that could be either a Image, Backing Paper or Printable and they are such good value against the British pound, you will find lots to choose from here The Paper Shelter website, so do click on the link and browse to your hearts content. But even if you dont use one of their products they will still give you 3 digi images of your own choice so you really cannot loose can you?
And so here is my Card

This Chef is called "The Pizza Chef" and you will find him here, I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used my Nestabilitie Die to cut him out and a fancy one for the mount out of beige card. The sentiment one is from my stash thats been stamped onto another piece of white card and then cut out by using my rotatrim and mounted with another piece of the beige card.
The base card is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of beige card and the papers are from "Trattoria Chef" and you will find them here, I used three papers the first is a red and white checked one, and the second is a green, white and beige check as well, and the third is a red one which has been mounted and laid down the right hand side.
The mounted image was then placed towards the left and the sentiment in the bottom right hand corner.
Now that youve see my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to The Paper Shelter 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 our "For the Man in your life" Challenge and I look forward to you cards.

He looks like a very happy chappie Shirley and the colours and gingham go with him perfectly.
