Challenge 10 at Cards for Men

This week at Cards for Men we want to see cards for 'Someone Special'.  this theme was chosen by Sarah and it was quite a challenge because I don't do 'soppy' cards for the men in my life and also because all of my men's cards are for someone special (husband, sons, father).

We were given images to use by the sponsor, Digital Delights, and I set myself a challenge to use the 'Groom' image.  I know it's unusual to have a Wedding card that is not to the happy couple, but I thought it could be from the Groom's Parents wishing him well on his new path, or from the Bride-to-be.  Either way, I thought the sentiment 'Cherish each passing moment' fit particularly well.

To see more of the fab images from Digital Delights take a look at the main challenge post to see what the rest of the Design Team came up with.  The challenge is open until midnight on 22 May 2011 and the prize on offer is 3 digital stamps of your own choice.

I started my card with the fab sketch over on Willow Sketchie Challenge.  the image was coloured using promarkers.  I didn't have a piece of blue card in the right colour that was big enough to mount my image so I used a piece of white card and coloured the visible edge with promarkers to match the blue I'd already used.  I did the same with the ticket sentiment.  The ribbon was from my stash but the black ricrac is a 'paper frill' from Doodlebug Designs.  The ticket is a stamp from Whimsy Stamps which I recently bought after a friend gave me a voucher.

Fab card Donna, what a great idea to give a card to a groom. Thanks for the tip about colouring white card, I often don't have the right shade of card so this will come in very useful xxx

Smart to color white paper with any color you want it to be. It is too often you do not have the right color! :)
Do you succeeded with the stamp. The sentiment is excellent.
