Dueling Darling's April challenge - Masculine!

It's the 15th of the month and time for another duel with the Divas and the Dazzlers.  This month team leaders, LauraJean for the Divas and Terry for the Dazzlers, chose a masculine theme.  LJ sent the Divas an awesome kit just full of terrific papers, ribbons, and embellishments along with a terrific lawn mower image and coordinating sentiments.    So here is my card both front and inside:

Here are the items I used from the Kit:
Images:  Lawn Mower and Sentiments are from "Hey, Man!" A*Muse Art Stamps
Patterned Paper:  Little Yellow Bicycle (Paradise Collection)
Ribbon:  Copper Brown and Green Gingham (Hobby Lobby)
Accessories: Ribbon Slide, Brown Felt

From my own stash I added SU cardstock in Close to Cocoa,  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive and small buttons.  The image panels were cut with Spellbinders Nestabilities, colored with Copic Markers and sponged with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Old Paper.  I used the sketch from Mojo Monday (MOJO236)


I'm also entering this in the Crazy 4 Challenges C4C132 using buttons as seen here:

A special bonus challenge was to mention the special guys in my life and I almost forgot to do this!  My special guys are my husband (we just celebrated are 49th anniversary) and my 2 sons.  Today, I'm thinking of my dad who would have  been 98 years old on April 13th.  I miss him so much and he was a very loving dad and did so much for my sisters and me and our children.

Check out the rest of the Divas' cards here:

Thanks for coming by!  I would love to hear what you think of my masculine card.  Wishing you a blessed day!!
