Blue and Brown For Men only

Hi everyone,

Here is the card that I would like to enter into Emma's Challenge, Make It Monday Challenge and The Allsorts Challenge. This is not normally my usual style but it is the idea that I had when I saw the challenge titles, so I went with it. I hope you like it.

 I've used an 8x8 card and matted and layered it with a backing paper from Gone Fishing from Daisytrail which I altered slightly using Craft Artist to make it look more swirly like the sea or a river and added a border to the left hand side. To the lower right, I used some Centura pearl paper in dark brown and tore it to fit the corner. I used some Spiders Web Net in Turquoise Blue from Club Green and placed it on the right hand side to add texture and have the effect of a fishing net. I used the Cricut Art Nouveau cartridge to cut the bullrushes from brown paper that I had in my stash and added a shell motif sticker and a basket embellishment also from my stash.

The image is from 'The Games Men Play' from Fee J designs and has been stacked and matted onto another piece of brown centura pearl paper which has been cut from the Lacy Labels Cricut cartridge. The sentiment was made on Craft Artist.

Challenges I wish to enter this card for:
Emma's Challenge No 10 - Brown and Blue
Allsorts Challenge - For Men Only Week 179
Make It Monday Challenge No. 114 - Anything Goes
