Naughty Nancy Drew

I love this cheeky, saucy digi from The Stamping Chef and thought she would be perfect for a man's card, especially one of my boyfriend's 12 nephews! Yep you read that right 12 nephews along with 4 nieces, 2 step-nephews, 3 great-nephews and 1 great-niece. Me, on the other hand, have none as my brother is not allowed have any children due to his health conditions! Thank goodness as we have enough already!

Anyway on to the card... It's for The Stamping Chef's Challenge #29 Anything Goes, Sketchy Challenges #73 to use the sketch below and Creative Romance's Challenge One for the Boys. I kept it fairly simply and let the digi do all the talking (cough, cough!) Not sure there would be much talking going on with all that beer she's holding!


And here's my card.
