Pollycraft challenge 5 Make a male card....

Hi all...its that time again.....

This time the challenge over at POLLYCRAFT MONDAY CHALLENGE has been set by Emma w

and Emma wants you to make a male birthday card....for any age....


As Emma rightly told us, it IS meant to be a challenge... but come on girl....male cards!!!!!!

I did mutter a few choice words when I found out about this one......


anyway..... choice words out of the way...heres my card.....
Fortunately I had to make a card for my Nephews birthday, so at least i had something to work with..... I've used the very lovely Dudley...who you can download for free from the shop.....

I chose not to decoupage him, because i'm rubbish at it, and instead added a few additional highlights and mounted him onto a cuttlebug embossed circle..... all the papers are from the basics set..... and the sentiment is a mix of dodgy handwriting and die cuts....
green lace is making memories {note worthy}

Emma.....I know I got really frustrated with this challenge at first... but I had fun really..... Thanks for giving us something to think about...and a break from christmas cards!!

Pop over to the Challenge blog to see the rest of the teams cards... and to see what the prize is this week....

Sorry its such a short post..... I'm writing it at midnight Sunday night and scheduling it....I don't think i'll be sleeping tonight as there is rather a difficult Design Team decision to be made!!!
