PFP Challenge - Sketch and male card

Hiya bloggers!!  Back with my second DT card for Passion for Promarkers and this week we have a sketch for you by Debbi with the added theme of male cards - just in time for Fathers Day here in the UK.

I used this brill digi image of Charlie Chaplin from Mo's digital for my card and used all the cool and ice grey shades, with a touch of red for his cravat!  To carry on the movie theme, I've adapted and interpreted the square background, and used a film strip stamp, coloured with PMs and also this great film strip acetate ribbon from Tim Holtz which I've secured with eyelets.  The card is for my nephew's birthday - he studied film and media at college and is hoping to make a career in this field, so hope he likes it!

Don't forget to pop over to Passion for Promarkers to check out all the fab work from the rest of the design team - stunning creations from all the lovely ladies there!!  We are also being sponsored by Whiff of Joy this week, so get making those male cards to be in it to win it!!! 
Thanks for looking, I shall look forward to visiting to see what you come up with!!
