Challenge #2 - a masculine card

Happy Tuesday and thanks for stopping by!!!

Today's card is for Challenge #2 at DAT'S Designing Divas Challenge Blog - to make a masculine card.

DAT'S recently brought in some fabulous merchandise from Life is Good including T-shirts, adorable coffee mugs, frisbees, footballs, soccer balls etc. No more running around shopping for birthday gifts when my boys get invited to a party!!! These t-shirts are super cool and unique. I already have two super comfy t-shirts and a fabulous hoodie that I can barely take off to wash it is so comfy. (Can't wait to get me another!) Click on over to the store blog where there are some photos posted! 
Anyhow, Donna also brought in their stickers. I think perhaps they are meant to be bumper stickers, but when she used it as the focal point on a card, I just had to try my hand at it too! 
To see Donna's card made with a different Life is Good sticker, click here.

I made two of these and plan to make a couple more.

And here is the inside of my card...

I would like to share my card at The Paper Players this week where the challenge is Tic Tac Toe - I managed to use five squares - designer paper, ribbon, square card, dry embossing and the colour blue.

Also, just a quick note to let you know that there are a couple of spots left in my National Scrapbooking Day workshop (the above layout) at DAT'S this Saturday. My class is at 4:30 pm. For more details please click my original post here. To register, call DAT'S at 344-7702.

Be sure to stop by the Designing Diva's Challenge Blog to see what the rest of the team has been up to. We look forward to seeing what you have to share with us!
