Male cards! - Charisma cardz challenge!

I hate male cards! They can be so painful to make mentally!!

My mums boyfriends birthday is tomorrow so had to make one up quickly to get it in the post today! I spent over an hour thinking about what to do, and came up with nothing! I spent hours searching the net a few weeks ago looking for something canal boat related ... still nothing! so I improvised, I took a picture off facebook of his own boat and then edited the image so it was done in a crayon to give it a different effect! On the original picture you can see my mums boyfriend on the back of the boat!!

Before and after pics below!







Card blank - Own from stash
Sentiment - craftwork cards
Embellishment - from local sewing shop


I would like to enter this card into the Charisma cardz challenge - Think male!
