The Squirrel and the Fox DT Challenge #77 For a male.

Afternoon, all! Once again I apologise for any typos, I am still using the elderly laptop with the dodgy keyboard!

At The Squirrel and the Fox we are being especially challenging this time - make a card for a bloke! So put away the ribbons and lace and flowers, you won't need 'em!!

Our sponsor is the fabulous Sweet'n'Sassy Stamps who are offering a lucky winner 3 free digis from their store! The DT have used some of their gorgeous images: this one is the Lighthouse digi stamp. It is perfect for my brother's birthday later this month, as he and his family like to go sailing.


I used some cloud patterned paper from stash for the background, then cut out an island shape in brown spotted paper. The image is coloured in Promarkers, with lots of gold glitter on the lamp,hallenge!
and I cut it out and added it with foam pads for dimension.

The 'sea' is torn strips of patterned blue paper, with stickles along the white edges, which is sparkly in real life but not the phots. Finally the sentiment is gold-embossed on a strip of vellum down the side.

I hope you'll join in with the c hallenge!

Thanks for looking!
