Let's hear it for the Boys

Good morning everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.  It's time for a new challenge over at The Crafty Pad Challenge Blog  and our theme this week is 'Let's hear it for the boys'.  It is team A providing the inspiration this time and here is my card:

We have two wonderful sponsors for this challenge which means we will have 2 lucky prize winners: 

Letraset Sponsor

are giving one lucky winner a set of

Pastel Tones Promarkers

and for the second lucky winner

 are giving a £10 voucher to spend in the online shop.

I used The Crafty Pad - Pocket Watch image, I copied the image into word and created three watches in different colours.  I cut the images out using my Spellbinders Classic Squares and then mounted them onto Fluer De Lis Square bases.  The centre Pocket Watch has been glazed with Crafter's Companion Spray and Shine and decoupaged to give it a little lift.  Full details of everything I have used are listed below.

This is the inside of my card, I have decorated it to complement the front:


Papers:  Debbie Moore Designs - Vintage Travel CD, Bearly Mine Designs - The Boy's Zone
Card Stock:  Crafter's Companion - Core'dinations
Tools:  Spellbinders - Classic Square and Fluer De Lis Square
Embellishments:  button, and string (coloured with a black ProMarker) from stash, Crafter's Companion - Spray and Shine
Sentiment:  LOTV

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Stamp Man Challenge - Make it for a Man
The Poodles Parlour Challenge - Father's Day/Male Card

This is a great card Pauline - I love the watches and that they're "stepped down" the card. Also the card has a great vintage look to it.
