Morning all. 
Gosh the days are slipping by, nearly the end of the month but the weather is still looking settled.
This means pointing for the hubby as he continues to point the old barn walls. 
It also means that as it's Tuesday it's another challenge at Cardz4Guyz
This week we would like to see your creations on the theme of -


Just before I show  you my card for the DT inspiration I would like to thank you for your wonderful response to our no patterned paper challenge last week. Pop over to the main site to check who Helen has chosen for her top 3, not an easy decision. 
OK, now for my card -

This week I have gone down the digital route for part of my card. As the ink on the printer was running low I thought I would try using a digital programme to make the background.
I used NitWits digital papers - Aye Aye Captain and the sketch from this weeks Sketch Saturday.

As I used this LOTV By the River stamp for the image I mirrored the sketch to allow for the floating log.
Once I got my head around the programme I ended up with a finished look that perhaps was a little flat in comparison to using layering but it's certainly easier on the ink!
To give more dimension I fussy cut the main image and popped him up on pads. I also added a white layer before mounting on a mustardy base card.

I shall also enter the following challenges:-
Allsorts - Inspired by a film title - A River Runs Through
Tokbobok - Masculine

OK, that's about it. Why not pop over to the main blog to check out the rest of the DT inspiration and join in the fun.
Thanks for stopping by, see you back soon.
