Easel Card For A Guy,,,

I finally managed to make my first Easel Card for a guy. I could not have done if it weren't for Sarah. I won the cute LOTV stamp on this card from her this month and it so happened to arrive in the mail today. I just had to go and make a card with it. I'm not much for brown but its basically the only paper I had that fit to some of the challenges that I wanted to enter. I definitely have to go do some shopping to get myself some paper for guy cards. I colored the image with copics and pencil crayons. The sentiment comes from Marion82. I just love her sentiments...she has so many to choose from. There were flowers on the side of the sentiments that I have to remove in order for it to not be girly. I wanted to add a charm that would fit to the occasion but the only one I found was a plain old Dollarama charm. I'll definitely have to do some shopping online to find some cheap ones...Any Suggestions???? Anyway enough rambling...Here is my card.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Simon Says Stamp Challenges - Stars and Stripes
  2. Stamp Something - Something Sentimental
  3. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge - Sketch
  4. Shannon's Sentiments - Birthdays

Oh...and before I go, head on over to Cheryl's blog and leave her some grand parenting advise on spoiling grand kids. She's got a surprise for one lucky commenter.
