Cards For Men 3rd challenge - sketch



It's time for a new challenge at Cards For Men and this time it's a fab sketch from Donna, with an optional theme of love/ valentines. The challenges are now running fortnightly instead of monthly and there are lots of great sponsors coming up :o) Hope you'll join in with us!

I decided to make a valentines card for my hubby. I've tried not to add too much detail because sometimes he says there's 'too much going on' on my cards - the cheek! It did turn out a teeny bit girly I think, but he won't mind. I've used a digistamp from Digistamp Boutique, coloured with promarkers - I love these little bears. The papers are MME be loved, with DCWV cardstock, and the scalloped circle is from the accessory sheet that came with the papers. I've used my new 'primitive hearts' sizzix die to cut some hearts from one of the papers - I was having a bad day and my first ones had the heart pattern upside down lol, didn't notice for ages! I've used the MS zigzag punch for the edges of the centre panel and finished off with a sentiment on the bottom of the easel - this was also taken from the matching accessory sheet.

There are lots of 'love' themed challenges around this week, so I'm also entering my card for the following:
