Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges

Hi Folks
Welcome to all my crafty friends and followers. Another week has flown by and today sees the start of a new challenge over at Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges.  Our theme for this week is:
Guys and Girls
You can create any project you like as long as it fits the challenge theme.

We have two fab sponsors for this challenge:

I used a great image from Dr Digi for my inspiration project.

This image is called Man Flu.  As this was an image with lots of detail I made an 8 x 8 inch card.  I coloured the image using promarkers, distressed around the edge with some distress ink and added some faux stitching.  The backing papers are from Papermania and were matted onto kraft card.  I forgot I had these papers.  I die cut some buttons, corners and the little bow.  The sentiment is from Little Claires and was matted onto a die cut.  

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges to enter your creation.  Don't forget to check out the inspiration from my fab teamies.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
A Little Bit Crafty - Man up
