One for the fellas!! (Well one won't hurt will it?)

Good afternoon everyone.
Just one card to show you today - but it did take some colouring!!
I based this card on the sketch over at Sketch Saturday as shown below:
I wanted to do a male card to fit in with the challenge over at Rosie D's challenge which is Just for Men.  By chance this also fits the challenge at Charisma this week which is Think Men.
So here is the card I made for these challenges:
I have used an image from M&M Designz which Judy's Mom has drawn - clever lady!!  You can see all of Judy's images at the Digital Ink Co Store along with the other six creators.  Just click on the Creators tab to see the different creators' images.
I coloured in the image with ordinary pencils and then went over the whole image with a Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Tea Dye) to soften the colours.  I backed this onto some black card and then used a piece of Stampin Up paper as the background piece.  The dark brown card is from a Hot off the Press paper pad called Ivory.  I stamped the Just for You sentiment using an Adirondack ink pad called Rust and then distressed the edges in the same ink.  The little pieces of paper are the reverse side of the Stampin Up paper.  The flowers are all from my stash and are made up from some I won in a Candy and some I already had.
I'm also going to enter this card into:
Fab n Funky - Shabby Chic (Well I did distress it so that counts doesn't it??)
Paperplay  - Birthday card for someone special (this is for my Dad - hope my Mum doesn't tell him!!)
So there you have it guys - hope you like it.
