Manly Men!

Manly Men...that is this weeks challenge over on the Tiddly Inks Challenge blog. So celebrate the men in our lives by creating a card using a Tiddly Inks image.

I will be honest and admit that I struggled a bit with this challenge because I don't really make male cards.  I am not sure why. Hmmm something to think about. I guess everything I do is very girly because I have been blessed with two little princesses. So I tried to the best of my abilities to pull together a male card and this is what I came up with.

In this card I used Take A Stand  and added my own words to the signs using Photoshop....gotta love digi images! 
So I hope you will join in with us for this weeks challenge, I would love to be inspired to make more manly cards from your gorgeous creations.

Oooo, there seems to be some 3D effect happening with this card. Is it like a swing gate card?

Love the wrought iron door hinges and all the Dad posters. Cute idea.
