Sweet Stampin' DT Card~A Man Thing!

Hello Girls~

Goodness me March is here already, looks like this year is starting the same as last year...quickly..

So, It's Saturday, that means another Challenge at Sweet Stampin'. This week it's a challenge for the Men in our lives!, so the Theme is "It's a Man Thing". Our Sponsor this week is Cuddly Buddly.
Good Luck.

I have chosen to make this card for this weeks challenge. I have had this Stampavie "Flower Power Camper Van" for ages and have used it quite alot. Men seem to like a card made with this image and even though it has a few flowers on, I still think it passes as a Male image quite well.

These papers are all MME. The pearls are Hobbyhouse. I made the button myself (do this alot) I have cut about 6 small nestie circles, using the smallest die, and using any leftover card I have. I then cut another in the pattern paper and this is the top of the button, glue them all together and punch two holes through the middle, all finished with a string knot.
The image is coloured with Pro-Markers. The sentiment is a LOTV.

Great camper van! Makes me think of flowers in long hair and gypsy tops with maxi skirts (and that was just the boys - LOL). Thanks for joining us over at CCM this week!)

Fabulous card, Debbie. Male cards are just not my thing--I only make them when I HAVE too...LOL. But you did a terrific job here in incorporating everything manly--the image, the DP's and the embellishments. Love it!

Great card Debbie! :) I love the cute camper van image, it's perfect for a male card...even with the flowers :)

I will be working on Friday (all being well!) I will be in the wool department so don't forget to pop down and see me. I am not sure if I will be able to make it to Harrogate this weekend as I can only go on Sunday so will have to check with Kevin in case he has anything planned.
Hope to see you soon
