One for the boys

This week's challenge of men's cards at Penny Black had me thinking hard this week. I seem to have a lot more of their images suitable for females but once I matched the image with this K&Co Hopscotch paper and the fab sketch at Sketch Saturday the card came together. I added some card candy and a simple sentiment to finish.

I would also like to enter this into the challenges at:
CES Spots and stripes
Passion for Promarkers One for the boys
Creative Inspirations Stripes
Colour Create Choose 3 fruit colours from the photo (Orange, apple, strawberry)
