Creative Inspirations card for a male

Hello everyone! I really am a bad blogger at the moment and I promise to make it up in some candy soon! I can't even promise to be much better over the coming weeks with the children off school and then my new job starting. I am also creating a fair few projects behind the scenes which I cannot reveal just yet.
I hope all the UKers have recovered from their extra long weekends and the jubilee celebrations!
Today we have another challenge over at Creative Inspirations which is a card for a male (groan never my fave lol)
I actually quite enjoyed this though and needed a boy card for an upcoming birthday..
I have used these fabulous Bazzill basics paper Dino-mite papers, loved these as soon as I saw them! Along with an old tag off new jeans (did I mention I keep all those sort of tags?!) and a metal tab.
I have used this adorable Smitty image from Saturated Canary unfortunately he has now been discontinued sorry folks! (have you been to Krista's new store yet she has some fab new releases!) I have coloured him with prisma pencils and added a stempelglede flourish stamp and a birthday postmark stamp from whimsy. I have machine stitched all my edges.
I would like to enter this into..
Fairytale boys, Crafty Catz buttons and bows, The poodles parlour male card, Jelly park challenges boy crazy, secret crafter anything goes, Catch the bug anything goes, Dis digi designs male inspired, OSAAT use a digi, The crafty pad use ribbon, by the cute and girlie cute as a button, cupcake crafts tag you're it and Kaboodle doodles mainly men.
Thanks so much for coming by my blog again everyone
Big hugs to you all
