The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 9 "Men!"

This week over on The Sugar Bowl the challenge is to make a Mans card. Now I don't know about you, but 90% of my cards are for I always struggle with male cards. Anyway for this card I have used Cowboy Luca and he has been coloured with Distress Inks using the following colours...
Tattered Rose (Skin)
Tea Dye (Hair)
Faded Jeans/Peeled Paint (blended) (Shirt)
Walnut Stain (Boots)
Vintage Photo (Chaps)
Antique Linen (Hat, Trousers & Neck Scarf)
Black Soot (Guns)

The papers are all MME, and I have added a sentiment by Craftwork Cards, string to make a lasso, and a Sheriff badge cut with a QK die in my Cuttlebug.

I have also decorated the inside with scraps left over...
There is a mystery prize this week....wonder what Sugar Nellie goodies will be in there....hmmmm yummy sugar...LOL

Hi Caz, I agree, Men's cards are tricky. You have succeeded with this one though, it's great, the inside is as good as the outside.

Great colours and papers.
