Karens Doodles 11th challenge



Time for a new challenge at Karen's Doodles UK and this week we're 'making it masculine'. Yes, it's all about those dreaded male cards... although to be honest I'm a bit strange and I like making them! There are some fabulous male images at Karen's Doodles so I hope you'll have a go :o)

I've used one of Karen's fab new male images available here, coloured with promarkers. Now I must admit I HATE my colouring on this card! I was really happy with the layout - I'm always pleased when I come up with one myself and it works, and then I went and ruined it with horrible colouring. Oh well! The papers are a download from Sweet Shoppe Designs (printed onto linen card from the Papermill), with coredinations cardstock. Star cut with nesties, button and ribbon from my stash and Doodlebug letter tiles.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
