Pile It On! Challenge - Birthday Card for a Man

The theme of this week's Pile It On! Challenge is:

'Birthday Card For a Man'

We are sponsored for this challenge by Dude Time Doodles:


The prize is a $10 Gift Certificate to spend at Dude Time Doodles.


I've used my trusty Penny Black 'Birthday Dog' stamp...love using him for male birthday cards...coloured using watercolour pencils.The papers are from the 'Archaic' pad by BasicGrey...I've had this for so long...and it's almost all used up...but there's probably a couple more cards left in it. I distressed the edges, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the 'Fabulous Birthday' set by Hero Arts.


Here are the challenges I've piled on:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Pile It On! Challenge.
