colour create and creative card crew

Afternoon all hope you are all having a good tuesday, even if the weather is a bit miserable out there, not much to do today ,been to work this afternoon and nothing else planned for the day.

I've combined two challenges with this card, colour create and creative card crew,the challenge over at colour create is a colour combo of orange, green and brown with the extra challenge of it being a male card and over at creative card crew there is a fabulous sketch by sharon to work with, so with the colour combo and sketch the card nearly made itself lol



The papers are basic grey archaic, the edges are inked with blacksoot distress ink, the image is a sugar nellie "hamish" coloured with promarkers and cut with a circle nestie, the buckle is an original sizzix die and the orange card is run through the script cuttlebug embossing folder and inked with the blacksoot distress ink, the ribbon is from stash and the rugby balls are a sizzix die with a bit of doodling by me, and the sentiment is a from a see- d's set (boys toys).

Thanks for popping in

Hugs

Brilliant card, almost used those same papers myself. I love Hamish, he makes mens card so much easier.

Oh my goodness! This card is fantastic Helen. The colours suit my sketch so well (now why didn't I think of that?). Wonderful image and papers. You've really done the sketch, and the colours justice. Thanks so much for joining both the Creative Card Crew and the Colour Create Challenges.
