One For The Guys, Blokes, Chaps, Dudes....Men

This fortnight at Crafting With Dragonflies we are looking for a card for the guys. Can be for Father's Day if you are in Australia or New Zealand or any other card with a masculine theme. Our sponsors this challenge are QKR Stampede and Sassy Studio Designs. Because we do our winners posts on our off weeks between challenges, we ask that you be a follower of the challenge blog so that you don't miss out on any of our winners posts as well as our challenge posts! I get to visit every entry this time and I'm so looking forward to it becuase I am always looking for inspiration on this theme.
I used Sassy Studio's Wonder Sassy for the front of my card. She is colored with Prismacolor pencils. My star dp is from MME's lime twist Out Of The Blue. I used the zig zag stitch on my sewing machine with some gold thread to do the stitching. Blue glitter paper and gold mirrored paper are the other two papers used. The star border is a Silhouette cut file as are the gold stars and speech bubble. I added the text to my speech bubble and used the print and cut feature of my Silhouette.
For the inside, I again used print and cut for both my sentiment (word bubble) and image. I colored Gus from Bugaboo Stamps using Prismacolor pencils and put some Glossy Accents on his glasses. Added a red check mark for good measure, and cheek ;)
I'd like to share my card at:
Sassy Studio Designs book or bookmark (comic books) and GDT call, closes Aug. 21, *Winner!*
Here Comes The Boys squares, closes Aug. 25,
Digi Galore anything goes and birthday hop, closes Aug. 31, *Hop Prize!*
Cards For Men funny birthday, closes Sept. 1
