A Father's Day/Male card Challenge at Crafting with Dragonflies

Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge Blog

With Father's Day coming up shortly in Australia (September 1st) 
our Leader Hilde thought it an opportune time 
to get those Male Cards made in plenty of time.
So this Challenge is to do just that

for those that celebrate the day at a different time of the year.

Our generous sponsors for this challenge are

the somewhat cute somewhat quirky Q K R Stampede rubber stamp company Rubber Stamps, Gold Leaf, Foil, and Glass Beads for Stampin, Scrapbooks, Card Making, and Paper Crafts

who supplied the fabulous image for my card
and the Winner will receive 5 digi images

who will be giving 4 digi images also

I picked a truly male orientated digi 
and to go with that a really Clean and Simple card that most men like.

I used basic white and brown card stock
 and highlighted my main image 
with designer paper from Kaisercraft Pack your Bags Collection.
I did very little to my Ship (digi 21705) by highlighting it with a gel pen 
and also did the same for the blue water.
Cut out a further piece of the brown card stock 
with a MS Punch added some string and button.
My sentiment was cut from Just Rite Antique Labels and 
stamped with Gina K Country Roads - which goes perfectly with my image.

Please also check out what our other Designers have created

I would like to enter this card in the current challenge over at
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes.

So glad you stopped by. I hope you will come back again soon
