DT Card for Cards for Men Challenge #19

Happy Monday everyone,  I hope you all had a good weekend and are recharged for the week ahead.

Today starts a new challenge at Cards for Men and the theme is "String it up".  

Here is my card share for the challenge.  If truth be told, this is my favourite card style and one I go back to often.....not quite CAS but it lets the image speak without too many embellishments. I've paper pieced the shirt and love my Xyron for gluing it on.

Our wonderful sponsor this week is Digital Delights who have a fabulous prize for the winner.

Details on my card:
Image: Whimsy Digital Stamp by Chrissy - Best Buds
DP October Afternoon Sasparilla, edges distressed with SU Not Quite Navy ink pad
Tag:  LOTV 
Buttons:  BasicGrey and tied with bakers twine
Coloured with Copics.  B95, 93, 91 used for the washed denim

You always have the neatest textures on your cards which blend together seemingly seamlessly LOL but it's a talent that I admire - your shading looks amazing. Hope your week is extra special. hugs, de
