Manly Card....

My Time to Craft's challenge this week for you to make a Manly card.  As you know, I like my girly cards (as do most of us...lol), but I managed to whip this card up in about 20 minutes.  I can't believe how easy and simple it was to do.

I first coloured my image in with Copics and then I looked for suitable paper to match and found this freebie paper from MME which I got today when I purchased the February issue of Cardmaking magazine.  I think the booklet is 6x6 filled with stunning MME design paper.  As it's a man's card, I didn't go overboard with embellishments, just stuck to a simple yellow ribbon and tag onto which I stamped the sentiment.  Two ticks and all done. I am really thrilled with this one and plan to duplicate it in a variety of colours.

Hope you've all had a good Monday, enjoy the rest of the week.  Thanks for visiting and leaving a message, I've really enjoyed reading them.  Hugs Sharon x

This is lovely! I struggle with cards for men. It always seems to need that little extra bling or ribbon or heaven forbid, flower.LOL
