Crazy 4 Challenges - A Man Thing

This week over at Crazy 4 Challenges they are looking for a masculine card. I always struggle with these, but since I've gotten this little darling from hAnglar & stAnglar I don't struggle too much. I did this card for my son Chase who will turn 18 on April 3rd. That is also Easter weekend here in Canada. So Chase will have a 4 day birthday weekend. I usually have his birthday on the first weekend, Easter on the 2nd weekend, then his brother's on the 3rd weekend, but I'm killing 2 birds with one stone this year. I have the birthday sentiment inside, but this will be from his brother to him. I used my new mini deck from Cosmo Cricket called Garden Variety. I've had this little guy colored for some time, just waiting for the right paper to match him, and this paper pack worked out fine.

I cut a strip and used my picket fence boarder punch from Martha Stewart. I added my red polka dot ribbon from Papertrey and hung a trowel charm from Stamping Bella. The sentiment is also from Stamping Bella.

Why not try your hand at a masculine card and see what you can come up with.

Hugs xx

Hi Carolyn,
This is a great man card. I lov ethe image - I see you managed to find a source for Hanglar stamps. I struggle with male cards - every time I go to by man stamps I come away with more girly ones.
