Cards for Men - Autumn, DT Card

It's time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men today and the theme is 'Autumn'. I love this time of year when it's sunny but cold - lovely for long walks followed by a cup of something hot and a cake ;-)

We are being sponsored this time by Crafts & Me who are giving away a beautiful stamp to one lucky person. Crafts and Me has everything for the card maker, with a wide range of rubber stamps from around the world. Teresa has just introduced her own range of rubber stamps from three international artists Hannah Lynn, Molly Harrison and Sara Burrier.

As always the DT have made some beautiful cards, please do pop across and have a peek and have a go at the challenge while you're there.

So onto my card, I have used some new Basic Grey papers from the Wander pad, they are so gorgeous and the colours are brilliant for autumnal projects. I have used a cute boy stamp from Elzybells and paper pieced his top. The star was a shape I made in Word and just cut it out - simples!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Papers - Wander by Basic Grey from The Glitter Pot
Image - Yo-Yo from Elzybells (now only £1.02 in the closing down sale!) coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - from a Woodware stamp set called Boy Zone
Buttons - Crafty Emma's Store
Tools - oval Nesties
