Love the card Sue. That blue is gorgeous and the stamps you have used are ones I've not seen before. They are perfect for a man's card. I'm going to pop over to the DT Blog now as I have a card to make for my brother this week and I need all the inspiration I can get, lol! You never know I might even get change to join in the challenge for the first time ;D.
