Cards For Men Challenge #3

It's time for another Cards For Men challenge already! Where DOES the time go!
Th challenges are now every two weeks instead of monthly which is wonderful.
Cards For Men's third challenge is a sketch. I love sketches.
Half the work is done for you when you don't have to think about a layout.

Here's the sketch (there is an optional theme of  Love/Valentine).
 And here's my card.......

The image is coloured with Copics and is a SU stamp from the set 'For Father', using MME DP and Nestie circles to frame the image. I added three brads for balance.
Sponged with Tim Holtz distress inks.'Tea Dye'.

Most men don't do 'lovely dovey' cards, so I came up with this sentiment and thought it would fit most men's idea of a love or valentine card . You know I'm right! LOL

Here are the guidelines
1. The card must be for a man/boy.
2. You need to follow the theme/sketch that is set.
3. It must be a new card.

You are free to combine challenges with other blogs.
The challenge will close on the 14th February 2010 at midnight GMT.  

The challenge is sponsored by Donna's Den and Donna has donated this fabulous prize....
It is a 'No Scissors Required Die Cut Decoupage' book, which contains 8 sheets of die-cut decoupage, 3 sheets of pop-out captions and 8 sheets of craft board.

 The other DT girls have come up trumps with the challenge.
Please pop on over to the Cards For Men blog to see their fab samples and to have a bash at the challenge.
We have now got the Mr. Linky gadget up and running now, making it a lot easier to post your entries.

Have fun and good luck!
Thanks for calling by
