Guys Like Getting Cards Too

Guys like getting cards too so let's switch gears and make "A Card for a Man".  That is the challenge the next two weeks.  Let's see what the gals on the Design Team made.
This card for man was very simple to make.  It is a gate card opening at the center and the image going  to the left..  The background looks like tire tracks and the image is from Sentimental Susan on Stitchy Bear Outlet site.  Keeping in mind that it is a card for a man, I did not any embellishment at all.


A clean and simple card made with a print out from a google map which I then ran through the printer again to add the Stitchy Bear's Digi Outlet 'BSA bike' by Sentimental Susan (our sponsor).I then added the computer generated sentiment mounted on a scrap of blue card.

Other than the "Route 66" stamp by Inkadinkado, this was a digitally created card.  The gorgeous motorcycle digital image is by designer Sentimental Susan and is offered by our generous sponsor Stitchy Bear.  I added the motorcycle to digital background rainbow paper by McMahon 5 and added a third digital image, the "happy birthday" sentiment by Clear Dollar digital stamps.  Most of my early dates with my husband were on his motorcycle so I made this card for his birthday.
For the first week of Card for a Man, I used an image by Sentimental Susan: a lovely violin and it can be found on our sponsor’s site Stitchy Bear. The background paper is from Aneczka W Design and the sentiment from the net. Keep playing along with us and have a magical week!
I have made this card today using a digistamp from Sentimental Susan  - available at the Stitchy bear outlet.  I have used stash from Kanabn's McKenzie and Stampunk ranges to collate the card and the beautiful acetate overlay is from Hunkydory.

I am pleased to have Sentimental Susan sponsor this challenge.  The digitals can be found on Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet
