Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - A Man's Card

It's Wendy's turn to set the theme of this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and she has chosen:

'A Man's Card'

Our sponsor this week is:


The prize is a $10 gift voucher to spend in the Digi Doodle Shop!

I've used a House Mouse image on my card...not sure who sent it to me, as it's been waiting patiently in my image box for such a long time...but the stamp is called 'Ready, Set, Go!' The papers are a mixture of BasicGrey 'Max & Whiskers' and Prima 'North Country'...I distressed the edges using inks and my distressing tool, then added faux stitches using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. I embossed the green paper using my Craft Concepts 'Hexagon Illusion' folder.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
