Card Design: Pattie's Creations Challenge #135...For the Boys--Use a Masculine Image

http://pattiescreationschallenge.blogspot.ca

Hey folks! I'm here today to announce the next challenge over at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. This time around for Challenge #135, the theme is For the Boys--Use a Masculine Image. With Father's Day coming up it's the perfect time to create a card with a masculine image. Additionally, there is always a need for birthday cards, thank you cards, friendship or thinking of you cards for the many men in your life! I know that some people have a difficult time with masculine cards so this is a good time to stretch those muscles.

Here is my card, I hope that I haven't forgotten any important details:

General Info:
  • This card has been created 100% digitally and then layered in a Mock Up (courtesy of Frisk Shop). I will print it out and assemble it a later date.

Digital Image Details:

Challenges I am hoping to enter...
You have until July 6th to enter our challenge which should give you lots of time to get a creation done. Remember the theme is For the Boys--Use a Masculine Image. I really hope that you will be able to join us. You can enter twice per challenge and of course MUST follow all the challenge requirements that are posted for each challenge (please click HERE to become familiar with all the rules). In addition to all the typical criterion, you MUST USE A DIGITAL OR STAMPED IMAGE to qualify for the drawing (unless stated otherwise). We would absolutely love to see you use a Pattie's Creations (PC) image on your card, but you are allowed to use other images. If you do use a PC image, you will gain an extra entry in the draw and will have a better chance to WIN!  Easy Peasy right!

Pop over to the challenge blog and check out what my fabulous teammates have offered up for inspiration. Oh and don't forget...Pattie offers up a new freebie the first Friday of the month and it will remain up for approximately two weeks; so, be sure to pop over and check it out as well!

Well guys, that is it for this one. Hopefully I will see you all very soon.

Until next time,
