Sweet pea stampers: for the boys/men

It's time for a new challenge on the Sweet pea stampers blog and this time the theme is 'for the boys/men'. Please click the link to see the lovely designs of the rest of the team and join in the challenge with your cards suitable to give to a male, young or older.

I used Karen Middleton's 'surfer boy' digi (also available as a stamp), mounting on to some old striped paper that was in my offcuts box and a piece of blue card that had been run through my eBosser using one of Sheena Doublass's embossing folders, brushing the embossing with stormy sky distress ink.
