Cards for Men Challenge 5 - Paper Piecing

I dont know about you but i always struggle with cards for men. I love the Cards For Men challenge Blog for this reason. This week they have a fabulous challenge - Paper Piecing! and you have the chance to win some of the fabulous downloads bythe Digital Boutique.

At the moment i am loving the digi downloads by the talented Sally-Ann. Anyone who has been to my blog recently will know how much i am loving these designs. Go check them out for yourself here. I love this image, great for that special little boy in your life!

This is such a fun image from Sally-Ann, and i have paper pieced the rocket. Hope you like the layering and the easel style card.

I have filled in the helmet with glossy accents to give the appearance of the glass. Double click the image so see this more clearly.

Decorating the inside of my card with my Martha Stewart zig-zag punch and stars cut from my nestabilities.
Another Easel Card - and Sally Anns download

I've absolutely fallen in love with this owl image. I have paper pieced the owls body and then coloured the rest of the design with my pro markers.

What an adorable face! i have glossy accented his cute little nose and the hearts.

Again the inside decorated with the heart nestability die cuts and some ribbons from my stash.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog again, i always appreciate the kind comments you leave me. They mean so much.

Hugs Linda x

Awesome mens cards Linda...I really struggle with anything masculine! I think it's because I can't add flowers!
Hope you've had a great Mother's Day.
