Crafty Purple Frog Challenge - June 2017 - Make it Manly

  It is time for another challenge over at The Crafty Purple Frog Challenge Blog.

The topic this month is "MAKE IT MANLY".  
 For my card I have used a green card base from my stash.

I have used a sheet of decoupage from a Joanna Sheen Jody Bergsma 8x8 cardmaking pad of this gorgeous dragonfly image.

The backing papers I have used are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Teal Goodie Bag (sorry this is out of stock at the moment) and I have also used a paper from the Sweet Dixie Inspiration 1 paper pad.  On the Sweet Dixie paper I have used my Crafter's Companion Just for Men Urban Graffiti stamp set and stamped various circles using my Tim Holtz Peacock Feathers distress ink using second generation stamping for a lighter effect.

I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment which was a magazine freebie a few years back, two different ribbons from my stash, gems from the Teal Goodie Bag and three flowers from the Teal Goodie Bag with stamens added to the centre.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

What a fabulous card, Kym. I don't do so well with the masculine cards for men, so I usually sit out on those ones. LOL Thanks so much for sharing your art with us.
