Cards for Men Challenge 1

So here we are in 2011!  Happy New Year to you all.  Here's my card for the latest challenge over at Cards for Men which is being sponsored by the wonderful 'Stamping Boutique'.  The prize is 5 digi stamps and you'll find out all about this brilliant shop and get some more ideas from the main post over at Cards for Men.

For my card I used two images from The Stamping Boutique - Prince Gael and Scroll Journal.  Prince Gael actually comes on a castle background, but I wanted him on his own for this card.  I've used the scroll (in a bigger form) on the inside as well.  That's the versatility of  digital images.  The base card is Bazill Basics and the Design Papers are just oddments out of my stash.  The only one I know for sure is the slate graph paper which is from Basic Grey - Origins.  I've coloured the image with my Promarkers.  I got a few new ones over Christmas so think I should be ok for a while now, lol.

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers - Anything Goes
CES Challenges - Anything Goes
Crazy 4 Challenges - Celebrate Something
Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - Anything Goes
Southerngirls Challenge - Anything Goes
Scrapbook Sisters - It's A Man's World
Simon Says Stamp - Time to Party/Celebrate
Digital Tuesday - Anything Goes
OSAAT -  Anything Goes
