One for the boys - take it easy!

Good morning to you, peeps and happy Friday!
It being Friday, it's time for another challenge over at Fussy and Fancy and my card is a week later than usual - that is, I've transferred into Team B for a week because I was so busy that I couldn't manage to get my card finished in time last week. Anyhoo, here it is at last:

As you may have guessed, the challenge this week is to make a card for a man or boy, not one of my major strengths,I feel! However, K & Co's 'Hopscotch' pad and Lily of the Valley to the rescue and this is what came out. I love these DPs for male cards, the colours are so bright and sunny!
There are great prizes on offer for this challenge from Meljen's Designs and Love to Stamp, so do come and join us. There's also a DT call out at the moment so why not give that a try as well? Just follow the link above to go directly to the challenge site.
Well that's all from me for today but I will definitely be seeing you again soon! The card recipe is below and have a great weekend whatever you have planned!
