West Midlands, United Kingdom
I am a full-time working mum who works shifts with a son Richard aged 23 and a daughter Emma aged 21. I have been married to my lovely Husband Paul for 26 years. My passion in life, besides my family, is papercrafting, especially cardmaking, although I "dabble" in scrapbooking. I was introduced to Jewellery making in 2012 and found another addiction :) I have been cardmaking since 2006. I am also a bit of a tigger freak!

Triple Challenge Card

This is another triple challenge card: -
  1. Colour Create Challenge #13 - Orange, Green & Brown (Man's card)
  2. Papertake Weekly Challenge - Spots & Stripes
  3. Forever Friends Challenge - Sketch
I find men's cards soooo hard as I love embellishments and there is only so many you can used on a man's card so I have gone a bit mad with brads!!!!

Image: Forever Friends coloured
Papers: Cuddly Buddly
Sentiment and mat cut on cuttlebug using nesties
Medium: Promarkers from Secret Crafter
Card and brads from my stash

Hi Jane,
It's pretty tricky with cards for men, you can't accesorize like usual and that should make it easier, shouldn't it?? But it doesn't!!
You pulled it off though, your card is beautiful, but not too beautiful, lol. Great image for the CC challenge and great coloring.
