Masculinity Rules at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge

Good morning to you all in the land of blog
Today sees the next challenge at the 

with the theme this week chosen by the very talented Wendy, who chose the theme of 

A Man's Card

We are sponsored this week by the fabulous
who are offering a $10 voucher to the winner

So I created (okay, so I seem to do these a lot, but then I have a house full of fishermen and an extended family that also have this hobby) a fishing birthday card :) but don't forget to hop over to the main challenge site to see more masculinity....................

The base layer on this card and the contrast is a bright yellow.  The papers are from the Verde Papermania Capsule Collection.  Threads are fluff chucker resources from one of my many shopping trips at the fishing shows Matt goes too.  The little fish charm as always :) The sentiment on this one is a new set available at Grimsby Crafts by Wild Rose Studios called "Little Labels"

Here is a close up of the Lily of the Valley Image " Gone Fishing" coloured in Copics
As always, I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors and followers for the lovely and inspirational comments you leave, which allows me to hop on over in return to see your own lovely work.

I would like to remind you all that you have until 8pm this evening to enter my 900 follower candy, you can enter here

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges

Paper Pretties - 2 or more dp

Top Tip
To colour a large area with copics first wet the card with your colourless blender.  Also don't be afraid of using lots of tiny dots and lots of different shades of one colour in  your larger areas, it will blend beautifully, especially if you have wet your large area as well.
iCopic - Green
Love to Create - Birthday

hugs and enjoy the rest of your evening

Hi Kate,
Gorgeous card I always love your yellow and green colour combination. Also love everything in your focal point. I suppose a card for 15 year old boy would not fall into a Man's card theme would it?
