I'm Distressed! It's A Sketch!

Hi all, this weeks challenge at Dude Time Doodles is a sketch challenge!

Follow the sketch to create a card for the man in your life!
You can flip it, twist it, lie it on it's side or even stand it on it's head.
 As long as we the Dudettes can see it's our sketch, we don't mind how you play it!
This week we are sponsored by Creative Inspirations who are offering a prize of 4 jars of their Fabby Paints
See Anne's Tutorial on the  DTD Challenge Blog
Here's my card!

I've used the sketch pretty much as it was but adjusted the  sizes of the panels!
The image I have used is Golfing Greg
He looks really distressed doesn't he! Don't think he's quite at the top of his game!lol
As you can see I have coloured him with promarkers & chalked in a background.
To mirror his distress I have distressed the edges of the image & the DP panels

I've used a square card, as my base, made from a sheet of brown textured cardstock.
I added matts of textured green DP's which have been in my stash forever. 
I'm not even sure where they came from.
I added some ribbon & a Digi Sentiment which is from TLC.

I printed it on to plain white card & cut out with a labels nestie. 
I then punched a  hole & threaded it with ribbon so it could swing!

I added some Card Candi & a Peel Off Happy Birthday.
In my stash, I found a few golfing embellies & I thought that the golf ball on the tee 
was just perfect for this card!
It gives poor Greg something to swing at! If only his club wasn't bent! lol

I also decorated the inside of the card to create a panel which could be written on.

I think that finishes it off nicely!
Thanks for looking, I hope you like it!
I also very much hope you can find the time to enter the Sketch Challenge over at 
Dude Time Doodles this week! 
You will have one week to flip the Sketch, twist the Sketch, work the Sketch and submit the Sketch.
You are not required to use Bonibleaux Designs although it would make us really really happy and giggle a lot if you did!
MUST be a masculine themed card, you can use humor, innuendo, be a little naughty, sarcastic, but it has got to be for a DUDE!

We the Dudettes can't wait to see what you come up with & we look forward to stopping by to visit!!
