Something a bit different today

I have to say I am loving crafting and blogging on a regular basis again, and here is the latest effort I've made today. 

 This is a Lilly of The Valley stamp which I have used before but probably not as much as I could have.
I stamped him on some white card from Anna Maria Designs, used some black and white card I had in my stash, sorry it's been there so long I have no idea which brand it is. I mounted the image on some black paper, used a little stamp for the sentiment, punched it out and a bigger one to go underneath, I liked how it reminded me of a tyre, added some card candy and that was it.
I am entering this one in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers - Black and White I'm hoping the stripes of silver will be forgiven.
Gem of a Challenge - For the Boys
Cards 4 Guyz - Monochrome
Cards Galore - Anything Goes
Digi Sketch Challenge - Sketch and Theme - One for the men
Oh La La Challenge Blog - A Man Card
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes

As always thank you for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave are most appreciated.

I love the polka dots and stripes together and the card candi is perfect for the polka dots.

The image is fabulous and looks really good just stamped in black. As for not using it as much as you should! I guess we are all guilty of that, I know I am.

Thanks for sharing with us

Hi Hun, I love your card, and yes you are forgiven for the silver (to be honest I wouldn't have noticed if you hadn't pointed it out!)
I have way too many uninked Lili of the Valley stamps, but still I buy!!
Thanks for entering my challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and More. Good Luck.
Hugs Kimx

Very clever to make a "tyre" with your sentiment, what a fab masculine card.
Thanks so much for playing along at Ooh La La Challenge, hope you'll join us again next Monday.

I love that you have kept the stamped image un-coloured it works really well, and your little tyre sentiment is a superb touch. Thanks for sharing with us at Ooh La La creations.
