Crafty Creations - one for the guys

Today at Crafty Creations there is a brand new challenge - to create a male birthday card based on a great sketch by Tami Mayberry.

The design team were supplied with digital images from our sponsor for this week - Delicious Doodles and I chose to use In the Harbour for my DT card which is quite loosely based on the sketch, the backing papers are Basic Grey, the image was coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment is from Stampin Up.
