Inspired by a book, song or film - Sweet Stampin' DT

Hello everyone!

It's Saturday, which of course means a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin' and this week Team Fi get to play with the super fun theme of Inspired by a book, song or film.

For me the choice was an easy one... I recently won some images from Sassy Studios, and one of the ones I chose was the perfect digi for a birthday card for a friend of mine, whose birthday is next week!

This is what I made for him, and I'd say my inspiration should be rather obvious!

Of course it's the film "Captain America", which my friend is a huge fan of. Being a typical red-blooded male, females in figure-hugging costumes and stockings are also much appreciated, so I completely expect this card to be well received!

The papers are from Craftwork Cards and I did some more embossing as a way to include stars. (I put off trying embossing for ages, then half my cards suddenly use the technique!)

The sentiment was computer generated. Fun fact, the gentleman in question is actually known to myself and others in our circle as "colonel" (In fact, I think in all the years that I've known him, I've never actually called him by his actual name! He's always "colonel" or "sir"...)
I'm sure that he won't mind being demoted to "Captain" temporarily, lol.

So there you go, one card inspired by a film. There's some brilliant cards by my fellow sweeties waiting to be admired over on the Sweet Stampin' blog, so I suggest you go take a peek and see if you can guess what's inspired by what!

I'm soooo looking forward to seeing the entries this week!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Paper Crafting Journey - Make it Manly
Crafty Little Fairies - Song or Film title
Graph'It - Male Colours
Hobby Cutz - Celebration card

Have a most fantabulous weekend!
