Men @ Work

It's Thursday and we've got a new challenge for you over at  Outlawz Twisted Thursday! Every week is Anything Goes with an optional twist - for this week it's MEN @ WORK. Our August sponsor is Marker Pop.
For this card I've used one of my favorite LOTV stamps - I love this little painter! I colored him up using Promakers. I used my new oval dies to make the frame for the image and a bow die from Tim Holtz. I stamped the birthday greeting and made a frame for it as well. The DP is Maja Design. I used blue pearls from Storyteller.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Inkspirational - #62 - Use markers or pencils
2) Come and Get It - It's All About Dies
3) Allsorts - #270 Favorite Things (boy images, kraft, dies)
4) My Time to Craft - #254 Use Kraft
5) Storyteller - #21 Bling/Pearls
6) Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Such a lovely masculine card. Superb colours and decor. I can’t see any of Storytellers products on it, so unfortunately it won’t be in the prize draw. Hope to see you back for new challenges. Hugs from Lisbeth
