Waltzing Mouse Sketch Challenge 8

Hello everyone in Blogland!!

I've just sneeked away to post a picture of the card I have made for this week's Sketch challenge over at Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog. Wow, as if this week's challenge wasn't hard enough I decided to make it doubly hard for myself and make a more masculine card for upcoming birthday!! I know, I must be nuts - especially being pressed for time with my boys at home for the holidays!!I seem to be getting slower and slower making cards these days, even when I'm supposed to be following a sketch, LOL! For some reason I decided to turn the sketch 90 degrees clockwise and worked from that.

Anyway, here is the sketch and my interpretation (if a little loose - the sketch is in there somewhere I promise!!) follows after that:
