Today as I was going through my dashboard I came across the blog hop from Sassy Studio.  Now I just Loooooove their images!  And that one was just PERFECT for my hubby's birthday which is coming up in December!  So while he's out putting up the tempo for the cars, I played in my scraproom so that he would not see it.  I'm lucky he never checks out my blog so he will not be seeing it before his b-day.

So here is Shady (she's soooooo beautiful!!!)  Hope I did her justice...

To make this card I used some paper from Me & my big idea and some cardstock from DCWV.  I used my Fleur de lis square and small squares as well as Banner basic 3 all from spellbinder.  The corners of the digi are done with my corner punch from Creative memories.  On the inside I used my grand label 1 from spellbinder.  The flourishes are from recollections bought at Michaels on sale.  I added a little bling to her ear as an earing.

Here's a closer look at the digi that I colored with my copics  I also added some distress ink black soot.

And here's a look at the wonderful sentiment that comes from Create with TLC.

Here's the inside of the card because as I did the blog hop I saw a wonderful idea on Star's blog!  So just had to finish the inside and do this idea.
As you can see I put some little coupons as a gift.  I found them here.  I thought it would make a great gift for my hubby.  I used my new CM border punch and added some more flourishes as well as some buttons that I finished off with some Robin's Nest dew drops.

Here's a closer look at the left pocket:

I followed a wonderful sketch to make this card:

So I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
  1. Sassy Studio - Fifty shades of grey
  2. Cards for men - Sketch
  3. That craft place blog - Tic Tac Toe (I did dies, border, buttons)
  4. Lej designs challenge - anything goes
  5. Allsorts challenge- for the men
  6. Totally gorjuss - Anything goes with a button
So I'm going back to my craft room.  I'm pretty sure my hubby will like... what do you think?!?
