One For The Guys

Good morning lovely blog readers!
Here is my little creation for the new challenge over at
Crafting For All Seasons where the theme is
"One For The Guys"

I made a little rocker card for Fathers Day!
For those who are not aware, it's Fathers Day in the UK on Sunday 16th June!
I used Kraft CS for the base card & the scalloped mat.

The image I have used is from our sponsor 
Bugaboo Stamps.  Who are offering a fab prize of 7 digis to
one lucky winner! The image is called Gus Birthday - Optional
There is a fab sentiment which comes with it which although intended 
for a birthday, might also work well for other occasions too!
The image has been printed onto ivory cardstock from Southfield Stationers
then coloured with promarkers, cut out with a circle nestie then
inked with a liquid chalk inkpad.
I tried to pick out some of the colours in thedesign paper!
I also added some glossy accents to his glasses & the headlights.

The papers I have used are K&Co, Hopscotch Boy.
It's actually two sides of the same sheet.
I thought the transport images would work well with the image!
I made a little rosette which can be removed & worn if desired!
The tape I've used was in my stash, not sure where it came from
but I'm guessing it's recycled from packaging!

A little side view to finish up!
I'm putting this card forward for the following challenges:
Creative Belli - Fathers Day

Papertake Weekly - Hello Boys
Sugar Creek Hollow - Fathers Day
