A Man's Card

Hi, friends and stamp lovers!
This is my third card as a GDT for I love Promarkers. This week's theme is "a man's card". As simple as that.
The talented ladies at "I love Promarkers" came up with gorgeous creations this week too. You can check their work here.
For my card I chose a Kenny K image I have used previously for a friend who plays in a rock band. He liked it very much so I thought I should make another one using the same image but thoroughly different as composition. I just cannot explain to myself why I can't make two cards exactly the same, or at least similar:)

So, this is my card:


 I've been using a few elements which are not frequently used in cardmaking such as leather and a CD as a "circle nestie", some crafting stones  and black vellum. 
It looked interesting to me upon finishing it but since my husband said it was "awesome" I thought a man's opinion is quite eloquent in this case:) 

Recipe:
Medium: Promarkers
DP: Olivia from Basic Grey
Misc; grey leather, CD, vellum, leather flower made with a Sizzix Bigs die, ribbon from stash, button, craft stones, plastic stars, staples
Sentiment: freebie- not a clue where from and some Photoshop work

You won't believe it but I've found quite some challenges for a man's card:

Kenny K Challenges - Bows, ribbon or lace
Incy Wincy Designs - for the boys
Kaboodle Doodles - Happy Birthday
Ooh La La Creations  - It's a man thing
 Crafty Pad  - Use Buttons
Sweetest Thing - SKETCH 
Crafty Emma - Men only 
Our Daily Bread Designs -  Leather or pearls - faux or real 
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 
Sassy Studio Designs  - Use Something Recycled on project (leather, CD, button)
Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday 

Thanks for coming by! Have a great week!

Hugs, Iulia
