Napoleon says Happy Birthday....

Hi Susan here.....

I am very proud to say that I won a four part guest spot at Creative Card Crew. WOW!!! this is my first creation for them.

A new challenge started today and the theme is 'FOR MEN', the sponsor for this challenge is Digis with Attitude and I was very lucky to be able to use one of their images for this card. Take a look at this site they have some amazing images to work with.
For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous inspiration from the Creative Card Crew Design Team please call across and join in with them this week.

Now on to my card....
I have used backing papers from HOTP Cardmakers Ultimate Pack and distressed all the edges, and tore the edges of the blue border piece of card, using a distressing ruler.  My brads, rafia and photo anchors are all from our stash.

This fabulous image is called 'Napoleon the Lion' and is available from Digis with Attitude. I have coloured the image using Promarkers and chalks.

My sentiment tag has been made on my computer using two different fonts.
