   This week the theme for the Crafty Cardmakers and More challenge is 'for a man or boy' and have made a birthday card for the husband of one of my nieces. I have chosen to use part of a digi image from Make It Crafty called 'Family-adventure-boy'. I coloured it using Promarkers and distress inks and matted it onto brown core'dinations cardstock.
   The yellow design paper is from a paper pack which came from an old magazine and this I matted and layered onto brown core'dinations cardstock and white card. I attached a different strip of paper from the same pack to the lower part of the card and bordered it with gold waste peel off.
    From this latter paper I cut the sentiment using Tattered Lace dies and glued them to brown cardstock. I then outlined these using gold peel offs and attached them to the card using foam pads. Lastly I coloured some card candi and glued these to the bottom right hand corner of the card.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
