Stamp with Fun meets Whiff of Joy

There's a new challenge blog called Stamp with Fun that launched today with a fab sketch...my favourite two things combined...so how could I resist! I've used it to make a guys card, so I've stuck quite closely to the sketch...no extra 'frilly bits', although I did use a die-cut star in place of the flower. I've also inked the edges of everything (a bit more than I would usually do), and have sanded the embossed panel for a distressed look...so I'm also entering this card for this week's Whiff of Joy Challenge, where the theme is 'Let's get dirty!'


My main image is 'Henry - Celebrating Mouse', the single cupcake (from the 'Cupcakes' set) and the sentiment (from the 'Anytime' Messages' set) are both by Hero Arts, the papers are all by BasicGrey (from the 'Granola' and 'Archaic' pads), I used the Cuttlebug 'Spots & Dots' folder on the background, and the star was cut using a Nestie die.
