Sentimental Sundays DT post: challenge #197 - Card for a Boy/Man

Hiya!!! I hope you are having a great weekend! our weekend has been great! our friends from Aberdeen came to spend the weekend with us... we had a great time, looking forward to see them again soon!!!

Today, a new Sentimental Sundays challenge is starting!!!

The theme this week is 

Cards for a Boy/Man
(plus a sentiment)

Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede

So, hop over to Sentimental Sundays challenge #197  , take a look at the great cards my fellow DT's have made for your inspiration, and join us!

This is my boy/man card!  I really struggle with male cards... I find them so difficult to make, as I love my embellishments, and obviously I can't put as many on a male card!

For this card, I used a really fun digi stamp from QKR Stampede, which they kindly donated for me to work with, called "Upset Golfer".

The papers I've used are from:  American Crafts Amy Tangerine Yes, Please and from American Crafts May Berry.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers:

I used: Vanilla and Almond for his skin;
Pink Carnation, Blossom and Pink Mittens for his shirt and
Cool Grey  5 to 1 for the shoes and the golf irons.

I paper-pieced his hat and trousers with a bit of scrap paper from K&Company. I use some green watercolour pencil to make a bit of shading on the paper-piecing. 

I created the sentiment on my computer. 

Then I just embellished with a few brads, a bit of twine, an spiral paper clip and three kinds of washi tape from the Papermania Capsule Collection Spots & Stripes bright.

I really hope you like my inspiration card for  Sentimental Sundays challenge #197 this week!!!
