Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge #29 and DT Call

This weeks challenge over on SCSC is 'Shaped Cards' and there is a DT call for one person to join the team.

Here's my card for the challenge and DT Call.

I've done a triangular shaped card. The stamped image is from Clare Curd's male stamp set coloured with copics and then cut out. The dotty paper is K&Co and the wood effect papers I bought from Hobby Craft a while back. The silver tacks are tiny brads that I took off of some charms. The image was holding a spanner but I've added a metal hammer charm instead. The wording was handwritten on one of the wood effect papers and cut to look like a rough-cut plank of wood with jagged ends. It's a brilliant saying I stumbled on a while ago on the net and says, "If at first you don't succeed, shouldn't you try doing it like your wife told you to do it??", I think it's fab, and I know a few guys this would be good for, including my own Finished with some card candy.

Hope everyone has been enjoying their weekend so far, been a lovely day here again, though I hear some parts have been quite wet and thundery today.

I'll be back in the morning with the next Stamptacular Sunday Challenge here's a little sneak peek of my DT creation, so be sure to check back tomorrow to see the whole picture and find out about our latest challenge!!
