Pear Tree Designs - challenge 12

This is my card for Pear Tree Designs - challenge 12. The theme of the challenge is a 'Male theme' card. The stamp I chose to use is 'Doggie Parcels' by Little Claire Designs.

I stamped the image with a Memento ink pad and colour him in with ProMarkers. I chose 'male' colours for the card - shades of browns, reds, blues and olive. I used Nestabilities to out the image and the brown frame. I stamped additional balloons and attached them to the card. I drew in the balloon strings with a fineliner.

I cut a large square of brown card for the background. Onto this I attached panels of patterned paper. Across the centre of the card I added a strip of brown and cream ribbon. I tied a bow with the cream ribbon.

I punched small circles using by Stampin' Up circle punch. I added small thread holes using a screw punch so they looked like buttons. To finish I added a greeting by Craftwork Cards.
