So Macho!

Good morning peeps, it's time for a new challenge at Allsorts today and our theme is 'Masculine' hosted by the lovely Mervi. Our wonderful sponsor is Digistamp Boutique.


My card was made for a football mad chap who celebrated a rather big birthday recently. I used the super cute Football Alf from our sponsor Digistamp Boutique. The recipient is a Chelsea supporter so I stuck to blue as my main colour...

 This is the gift we gave (only a token). It's a huge mug filled with quotes and silly sayings about being 40 and some chocolate...
 I wrapped the mug and card in cellophane...

Image - Football Alf coloured with Promarkers & Flexmarkers
Papers - some very old Doodlebug paper I found in my paper box
Buttons - stash
Seam binding - Crafty Ribbons
Other - Quickutz star dies, Memory Box Cloud die, Spellbinders label die

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