Let's Get Sporty Challenge

Summer's here so it's a great time for our men to get in shape!!  Fitting that our challenge is "Let's Get Sporty" at Cards for Men!

Our sponsor for this challenge is That Craft Place

 I used an image from DigiStamp Boutique for my sporty card ... this sports-minded fellow is Weight Lifter Alf.  I colored him with my copic markers and did some distressing around the sentiment also from DigiStamp Boutique and can be found here

This is my first shot at a buckle card ... modified it a bit and am very happy that it turned out.  Will have to make some minor adjustments next time but at least I know it works!

The papers are from the Celebrate Collection by Authentique Paper.  For the star border on the inside of the card, I punched out the stars from the left over paper and glued them to the edge.  The sentiment was a freebie from The Alley Way Stamps.
