Cards for Men Challenge - No. 22

Woohoo, another Christmas Card.  If I keep this up, I'll have  enough by Christmas.  I'm sorry for the poor picture, and I'll try to get a daytime one today.

This card is my DT card for the new challenge over at Cards for Men where the theme is 'Anything goes - as long as it's male'.  My hubby said he thought it was a bit girlie but I always had this image in mind as a sexy santa helper to use for my husband's card.  I'll add a sentiment nearer Christmas and hopefully that will make it clearer, lol.

The image is from our fab sponsor, Digital Delights and can be found here.  I've coloured it with Prismacolours and tried a bit of white glaze on the trim of the hat and dress.  Unfortunately it ran over the lines a bit and pulled in some of the red so ended up pink.  I'll probably have a second go at this image and try something like 'snowtex' instead.  Anyway, hop on over to Cards for men, where you'll find all the details of the latest challenge and some inspiration from the rest of the design team.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Stampman - Challenge #8 Cards for Men
Stamp Something - Use a digi
Tuesday Throwdown - Anything goes
Tip-Top Tuesday - Anything goes
One Stitch at a Time -  All celebrations

Hi Donna, you know what they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and maybe with a little bit of extra oh la la hubby might just change his mind. I think youve done a brilliant job on your card the colouring is fabulous. With love and hugs Shirleyxxxxxx said...
