MAWTT Challenge 89 - For a male.

Hi Blogging friends. Today the challenge at MAWTT has been set by the lovely Lisa and she wants us to make cards or projects with a male theme. We were given some images to play with from our sponsor this week, Ellephantastic, and I had great fun with mine. You know me, I like to change the style to vintage if I can and this modern digi became Rory the footballer from years ago.

This is quite a simple card for me but you can't really embellish a boy card very much can you?

Supplies used -
Backing paper from DCWV
Footballer and football boots Habico embellishments and grunged up.
One brad
Image coloured with promarkers and then washed over with frayed burlap DI.

Do go check out the  samples from our fabulous DT at MAWTT and our sponsor at

Hope your week is going well and that you are managing to get some crafty time.

Take care.

luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox

Great card for a guy and, as you so rightly say, you can't embellish a masculine card too much. Just PERFICK
