Combining papers

Truly Scrumptious have challenged us to put pink, brown and green together this week, Creative Card Crew's 'men' challenge is perfectly timed for Andy's birthday card, for which I've rotated this sketch from Stampavie:

to make this:

I've used papers from all over the place for this. The Chinese paper was a scrap from a challenge at my LSS, the green is the back of an American Crafts paper, you can see a glimpse of Basic Grey's Kioshi, and the background is Heidi Grace. The stamp is from Inkadinkado's Utopiary collection, all inked with Artnic inks. Quite basic, but that's about as far as you can go for a blokey, isn't it? They get all embarrassed about ribbons, bows and buttons, and quite rightly so. This isn't one of my favourites, but hopefully Andy will appreciate it.

Stunning card Rosey, that Inkadinkado stamp is sensational!! A fabulous 'man' card and the layout you've used
is just perfect.
Still emailing you - oh stop the world I wanna get off!!!
Still envying you your temperature as well!!

So glad you shared this with us at Truly Scrumptious,
