For a change

Yep it's a male card!! I hardly ever do them (even though I have two boys, a husband, five brother's in law and a nephew) but sometimes I'm asked to make one for a friend and this is one of these times.

The theme was to be skiing but although I searched for a digital image on the subject I couldn't find anything suitable so I just had to make my own! I found a picture of a skier and altered it in Illustrator, enlarged it, gave it a blurred effect and printed it out. I then made a tiny outline version and made it into a repeat pattern for the paper which I then stuck onto cardstock, coloured with Promarkers and cut out the numbers. Some striped backing paper to match from DCWV, a handwritten sentiment and a few matching eyelets completed the card.

I'm entering my card for these challenges:
Aly's Sunday Challenge  - For the guys
Crafty Pad - Something for the boys
Paper Playtime - Anything goes with a digi
Alphabet Challenge - "M" is for men
Tellen's Place - Make it for the guys
AiFactory - For the boys
