Tuesday Throwdown - You're the man


Even when I'm not running late I am.  I was 100% positive that I had scheduled this post to go live this morning but no - it was sitting in my drafts!

It's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown and our theme is "You're the Man" - we want to see your male inspired cards.

We have a fab sponsor who have been super kind and given us lovely images to work with!

Here's my card:

The papers are from My Minds Eye.  I really quite like the ribbon round the sentiment but that wasn't the plan - I just couldn't find one of the cutting plates for my big shot to cut a scallop circle.  I think it's hiding somewhere - so if you see it can you let me know where it is!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Father's Day / Masculine
Crafty Card Makers - Father's Day
Anything Goes - Father's Day
Bearly Mine - Anything Goes
Crafty Sentiments - Card for a male
Creative Craft Challenge - We love you Dad
Papertake Weekly - Hello Boys
Tip Top Tuesday - Masculine
Ladybug Crafts - For the man in your life
Really Reasonable Ribbon - Masculine + Ribbon

Thanks for looking!

Have a great week!

Julie, I love the image and your design! Almost catching himself some buttons! The sentiment surrounded by the beautiful ribbon flower makes the entire project though! Really terrific design, thanks for joining us at RRR!

Lovely card, the image is really sweet. The ribbon round the greeting is a great idea. I'm always losing my dies too, maybe ours are hiding out together?

Thanks for joining in with my challenge and sharing with us at Crafty Cardmakers.
