Cards for Men Challenge - No. 10

So here we are again with another card for Cards for Men.  The challenge theme this time is 'Outdoors' and here is my design.  The images are from Hope Jacare and I have coloured them using Prismacolor Pencils.  The card stock is Bazill Basics (colour Mystique).  I cut a 6"x6" card out and then a 4"x4" square aperture.  I've kept the inner part to use on a gatefold card in the future.

In practice I found the card was not quite stiff enough to support the back after I had cut such a large hole in the front.  I would either reinforce it or alter the design slightly in the future.

I hope you like my card and will have a go at the challenge on Cards for Men.  Pop over and take a look at the other members of the Design Team for some great ideas.

This creation is amazing!!! I have seen aperture cards before and have never gathered up enough nerve to try it...I am such a creature of habit; however, your lovely card has inspired me to give it a go:o) I only hope my attempt will look half as fabulous as yours! Thank you for the inspiration!!

Hugs!

I love the idea of this card with the cut out it looks much more 3D and I really like the movement that it has with the safety ring hanging at the front :D
