Creative Knockouts blog hop and some Candy giveaway

Hello everyone!!!  I'm here for the fabulous blog hop of Creative knockouts yes... Dutch Dare Card Challenge has moved!!!  And we have changed and updated our look!!! How fabulous right?!?  And in order to celebrate we are having a blog hop with some prizes along the way.  So you should have arrived from the super talented Linda.  If you didn't you will want to start at the top which is Dutch Dare Card Challenge.

The challenge that will be taking place this week over at Creative knockouts is about the man in our lives it's Masculine.  And the perfect sponsor for this is non other than:
Dr. Digi's House of Stamps
It's not my week to play but I just HAD too ;o)  So for my card I used the awesome Hole in one Hal.  I just had the most fabulous sentiment from Create with TLC that was just waiting to be used on an image like this lol 
You will want to click the read more not to miss out on the rest of this post!!!
For this card I used paper from Swagger by Fancy Pants.  I just love this paper for a masculine card.  I used my small and large rectangle and my label 4 from Spellbinder.  I added a little ribbon from my stash, a button and some hemp twine.

Here's a closer look at the digi colored with my copics and distressed with vintage photo.  You also get to see the fabulous sentiment closer.
I followed this sketch to make this:
