Totally Ladybug Tuesday ~ Male Theme ~ Pami Style!

Time for another Totally Ladybug Tuesday!! .... seems like last week was ages ago! 

This week it was Pami's turn to choose the challenge and she chose Male Theme. 

We also have a fabulous new Guest Designer Julie, who is joining us for a little while, needless to say she is as lovely as the rest of us ladybugs, and fits in just nicely! 

I love making mens/boys cards, I find them so much easier than all the flowery, glitzy, pretty ones at the minute (yes I know I am strange!) 

So onto my card .... I dug out cheeky Jack (who else!) and coloured him in copics. Trimmed around him and mounted him onto some mirri board in blue. 


I had an incredible urge to curl the corners of my paper, so I did just that!. Papers are Echo Park Little boy and the star paper is the reverse of the chequered. I roughed up all the edges on everything apart from the image which you can't see properly from the picture, added some small buttons and then stamped a sentiment directly onto the paper. The sentiment reads from me to you, which is one of the sentiments from the BFF Phoebe set here

Now I am pretty sure there are an awful lot of mens cards being made at the minute due to fathers day just being around the corner, so hop on over to the challenge blog and get yourself linked up for a fabulous prize!
