One for the Boys


It's a new challenge at Penny Black and More this month and the theme is "One for the boys". I will admit that I do not enjoy making cards for males but as I like this cute image I quite enjoyed making my card. It did not photograph very well but that happens often on dreary days. I even managed to use some old and forgotten papers and card. I used stars, buttons, ribbon, twine, thick mesh and a sentiment to finish it off.
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE A PENNY BLACK IMAGE TO ENTER THE CHALLENGE BUT STRICTLY NO DIGIS. There are several craft prizes up for grabs this month for the PB challenge.


Sponsors providing the craft goodies this month are:- 
Penny Black
Pretty Little Ribbons
Crimson Cloud.

There are so many things I love about this card! First of all, what a pretty boy image, and I love the effect of the delicate coloring! Second, I love the added texture, it makes such a nice border and it works so well with this design! Also I like your choice of colors and the added buttons are fun details. I spotted your card on MIM and had to come over to have a closer look!
