Ruby's Rainbow Challenge #13

Last fortnight at Ruby's Rainbow we asked you to make something girly - pop over to the challenge blog to see who the spotlight winner is.  So, for the next 2 weeks we are thinking of the men folk in our lives and we want you to make:

One for the Boys 

I must admit, I ususally dread making men cards, but I really enjoyed making this one - it may be the fab image that I used!  This cute guy is Maurice - Christmas Socks from Pollycraft and I've coloured him with pro markers. 
Here's what else I've used:

Papers by Dovecraft
Sizzix holly die and Spellbinders dies
Circle digi freebie from Sentiments for You 
Card candy and bling from my stash 

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges:

Anything goes challenge - anything goes
Bearly Mine - use 3 design papers
Make it Monday - anything goes
The Sweet Stop - I used their sketch
One stitch at a Time - use your favourites (pro markers and nestabilities)

And, don't forget to join us over at Ruby's Rainbow challenge blog!

Thanks for visiting today,

Hi Amanda! Your Men Only card entered into Simon Says Stamp and Show's Challenge this week is wonderful! I love the papers you chose to layer for this card. Your stamped image of the guy holding the stockings is darling! You did a wonderful job of coloring it as well. Love the touch of red and pink!...goes perfectly with the little Christmas tree paper below him. Thanks for joining our challenge this week! <3 Candy
