Magical Crafts Challenge #17 DT card

Good Morning Everyone, today sees the start of another brilliant challenge over at Magical Crafts Challenge blog.  The challenge for the next two weeks is:

Father's Day / Something for a male

Remember, we are a multi craft blog so it does not necessarily have to be a card.  It could be a scrapbook page, a gift or anything else, as long as you've crafted it.  It doesn't have to be a Father's Day card, it can be a card or project for any man/boy in your life.

For this challenge we are being sponsored by the lovely Stitchy Bear Stamps.  Why not pop over to their shop and have a browse through their brilliant digi images.  The prize this challenge is to win the 3 digi images and the digi backing papers we've used from the Stitchy Bear shop.

My design papers and image are all from Stitchy Bear Stamps and I decided to use two of the design papers to make a carpet and wallpaper style background.  Then, I cut out my main image and glued it to the background.   I've coloured the image with my favourite pro markers.

I've used my circle and scallop nestabilities together with a couple of hand cut "ribbons" to make a rosette style greeting.  I love the circular sentiment which was this month's freebie over at the Creative Cottage.

So, I can't wait to see what you make for our challenge and don't forget to have a look at the other DT blogs - they've come up with some great ideas for this challenge!

Thanks for stopping by,

Amanda I love your treatment of the image and papers he certainly looks very happy sitting there in his den. A clever idea to cut out the image then stick it on the papers.
