Masculine Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers

Hi All
Happy Monday, and welcome to the latest challenge at Crafty Cardmakers where our host Rebecca has chosen 'Masculine Birthday' as her theme. 
She would like to see a masculine birthday card that includes some technology or a gadget. The technology or gadget could be a computer, games console, rocket or car for example.
We are sponsored this time by DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS who are offering a $10 Gift Voucher,and THE STAMPMAN  who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their online store.
I have chosen to use a lovely Lili of the Valley die cut for my card.
I must admit that it was one of the first stands that I headed for at the show on Saturday, and was probably where I spent the most money lol.
This could well be a picture of one of my Grandsons who like nothing better than playing on a games console. I added some Glossy Accents to the TV screen for added reality.
I have cut the image out using a Nestie and added it to the background papers using the sketch at Sunday Sketch and Stamp.
(Edited : That will teach me not to read the challenge instructions before I made the card. I love the sketch but I know that my card won't count as there is no stamping on it . Never mind I will try again sometime)
I have also added some gingham ribbon, Card Candi and brads that look like spanners.
The challenge at Here Come the Boys is 'No Stamps Allowed' which really is a challenge for me.
I'm hoping that this die cut will count as one of the DT used one on their card.
Once again I have added some faux stitching, I really must get to grips with my sewing machine for my cards.
I would also like to enter this into the challenge at Creative Corner Challenges where they are looking for Designer Papers, well there are definitely plenty of those lol.
Don't forget to stop by and see what the rest of the team have come up with, there are some fabulous cards there.
Have a great day and enjoy the sunshine. Well we have some here anyway.
Happy Crafting
Hugs Kimx
