Happy Times!

It's team B's turn to host the challenge at The Paper Shelter this week and this time around the theme is...
We would love you to share your masculine creations with us. 
You don't have to use a Paper Shelter image, but if you do you could win a $30 gift certificate to spend in store, if you use any other image you will still win your choice of 3 digi images from the store.

I have had this idea for a card shape in my mind for quite some time now and my original thoughts were to cut two strips of card one for each side and hold them together through the middle with a die cut frame front and back, but then I realised that it didn't really have to be that complicated I could cut the top and bottom sections away leaving a panel through the middle -  for want of a better name I am going to call it an H card, as that is the shape of the card blank.
I picked one of the fabby images from the Happy Times  Mega pack, which has 3 boy images to choose from.

Digital Stamp - Happy Times Mega Pack - The Paper Shelter
Papers and arrows - Wet 'n' wild - Crazy 4 Monograms
Sentiment - computer generated
Spellbinders Grand Scalloped Ovals die
Spellbinders Labels 10 die
Ribbon and buttons - Meiflower

I am entering the following challenges
Crafting for all seasons - #78 Boys will be boys
