SFTW - Card for a Male....

This is Stampin' for the Weekend's first challenge under the new management of Jan & Sandie so it would be great to get lots of support & good wishes for them hosting their first challenge ALSO exciting news - we are looking for 2 new DT members :) On to this fortnight's challenge which is to make a Card for a Male, usually I struggle with men's cards but I love these images by Sally-Anne & really enjoyed making this card. The papers are hmmm.... sorry can't remember but they are printed on the computer so probably from Designer Digitals or the Sweet Shoppe. I coloured the images (the watering can is stamped) with ProMarkers & used my Martha Stewart border punch. The card edges have been sanded & the paper has been distressed. I finished the card off with a ribbon & a ticket. Looking for more inspiration please check out the other DT members blogs & show them some love :) Have a great weekend!
