Cricket Crazy!

Hi Everyone!
Today I thought I'd share my entry for the Joanna Sheen challenge which this week is 'Its a Man's World'. Its often so tricky to make men's cards - I'm always lost as to what to embellish them with when ribbon, lace, flowers and bling are not really suitable! Anyway, this card was made in a trifold design using a rubber stamp of a little Cricketer from Flower Soft and to tie in with the cricketing theme I used the cricket field images from the Nostalgia CD to decorate the inside. I'm pretty pleased with this one and other than Flower Soft, a twill sentiment and Card Candi to represent the little cricket balls I managed to stray away from any fancy embellishing. Oh...I did use a Martha Stewart border punch as I thought it needed something other than a straight edge - couldn't help it!! Ha! Ha! I also added a little panel on the back to write the message cut using my Spellbinder's Labels die with a peel off for the sentiment.
Anyway, hope you like it. Why not pop over to the challenge site and join in with your creations.
Best wishes and thanks for looking!
