CUC DT Masculine colors card

It's time for our next challenge at Craft Us Crazy. We have had such amazing entries for our challenges. Thank you for making our challenge blog such a HUGE SUCCESS! I can't believe that this is our 10th challenge. Where has this year gone? For this challenge we would love to see your "Father's Day and/or Masculine Colors/Theme".

Today is my oldest son's 36th birthday & since blue is his FAVorite had to be blue (hey that sounds like a song..........It had to be you.......LOL). He's almost finished with his ER residency at a New York hospital so when I found this cute Teddy Bo doctor image I just had to use it for his card.

Notice the New York skyline? I wanted to put a little bit of New York city into the card without making it look too cheesie. I found the skyline image online & then changed it to blue & used a "rock" effect to blend in with the DP. My son & DIL will be coming back to southern California in one more year! YAY! I can't believe how fast their time in New York as gone. I've missed them both so much. They're here visiting for his birthday & it's been such a JOY to see them. We've laughed & laughed til my sides ache. LOL

Our sponsor for the first week of this challenge is Lauretta's Digital Stamps. The prize is 4 images of the winner's choice. Now that's a cool prize. So I hope you'll head on over to our Craft Us Crazy challenge blog & join in the fun.
