One Stitch at a Time Challenge 117

This week at One Stitch at a Time, we want you to make a card for one of the men in your life. Our sponsor this week is Creative Craft World who're offering the winner three Promarkers.

I chose to make a card for my eldest whose birthday is coming up this summer. He's off living the life of a young professional these days, having left his student days behind. For this week's project, I got to work with some beautiful papers from Panda Bear Designs called Painted Garden Spots and Stripes available from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps (link in my sidebar) and when I saw them I knew exactly what I wanted to do.

See what I mean? Those stripey papers just begged to be made into shirts! And of course, the advantage of digital papers is that I could shrink the pattern to fit the scale I wanted. the two spotty papers are also part of the set, and there are three other colours I didn't manage to fit into the card!

But of course, the card is for my son so I had to get a bit of a leg pull in there, so I did an insert too ...
Hope you can join us this week!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Kaboodle Doodles where they want male-themed cards,
Love to Create where they want something for a guy in our lives,
Digital Tuesday where anything goes (with a digital element.) (All papers and sentiments are digital.)

Pixie Dust where they want us to use three or more patterned papers (I used four),
The Stamp Man where they want something for a man,

Phindy's Place where they want something masculine,
