Cards for Men, first challenge of 2011!!!

It's 2011 and time for a brand new challenge at Cards for Men today and we have a sketch for you to follow designed by our lovely teamie Shirley (n.b. card must be for a male).

Our sponsor this time is The Stamping Boutique and the DT had some lovely images to play with.
"I'm Tracey Malnofski, the artist and owner of The Stamping Boutique. My team and I are very happy to sponsor Cards for Men. My store has been open since September 2009. I am currently a stamp artist for UnityStampCo. and I've worked for InStyleStamps, Squigglefly, and TheDigiShack in the past. I'm a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in my community. I have quite a busy household with a husband, 3 teenagers, 5 mini-dachshunds and an Appaloosa mare. It's noisy, but I love them all. I'm truly blessed.
'The Stamping Boutique' is dedicated to quality products and original artwork. We not only provide wonderful digital images in our store, but also several lines of red rubber images. Our designers are chosen for their character and personality, as well as, their beautiful designs. We work hard to give you our very best. Thank you so much for having us as your sponsor this week."

Please pop over to the challenge blog to check out the details of our new challenge. As always the DT have made some wonderful cards, please do pop across and have a peek and have a go at the challenge while you're there. So, onto my DT card, I have used an image called AJ with Sign (currently all digis have 35% off so go have a browse!), I think AJ is adorable and have made this card for my little one's birthday later this week...

Supplies:
Paper - Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket
Image - AJ with Sign from The Stamping Boutique coloured with Promarkers
Buttons - stash
Sentiment ribbon - Pink Petticoat
Tools - scissors for distressing
