A Two in One Challenge and DT CALL

Hi everyone, ooh had a blue screen on the 'puter whilst trying to post this!! Not good - only back from repair a fortnight ago!!  Pete just had a look at it and it had popped  up a screen saying it was recovering from an attack!!  How dramatic can one machine be lol!  Anyway, lets crack on before it throws a wobbler and shuts down!!

This card is for two challenges and I made it with my nephew in mind who's coming up to 16.
Simon Says - Punch It plus DT Call #2

Creative Card Crew - Punch It

I layered my nesties for this and cut a triangle from black cardstock, using one as a template for the other.  The black ribbon threaded through holes created using the film strip punch.  I didn't feel that the gems and the minature dickie bow detracted from the masculine nature of the card.  Hope Stevie thinks so too!

Image - Charmed Download
Papers - Basic Grey
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Film Strip Border Punch - Woodware
Circle Border Punch - Fiskars
Oval - Nesties
Cardstock and ribbon - Stash
Green Jewels and Mini Dickie Bow - Hobbycraft

Thanks for stopping by my little haven here in cyberspace!  Enjoy your weekend!

Tihs card is da bomb. I always have trouble with male cards and get stuck every time. The paper is gorgeous.

Good luck with the DT call. I didn't even realise that I had entered till you said. I need to read the challenges more carefully. Any way. I hope you get it as your work is always gorgeous.
