Boys Card

Two cards in a week, will wonders never cease... but I'm determined to kick nausea in the rear and get back to doing some crafting at least a few times a week, even if I can't work up to where I was at before.

Today we have a boys birthday card, using an image from pollycraft, coloured with promarkers: cinnamon, cocoa, blush, soft peach, warm grey 1, warm grey 2, slate, poppy, berry red, crimson and black.

The papers are all from my scraps box - in fact, except for cutting the card base I didn't use anything 'new' - and I used stickers for the sentiment.

I left it otherwise completely embellishment free, which is novel for me!

I'm submitting this for:
- Cards in Envy - Sketch #4
- Creative Creations #10 - For a Child
- Craft Your Passion #162 - Child's Play
- Oh La La Challenge Blog - Seeing Red
- Clear it Out Challenge - Anything Goes + Use two or more patterned papers


  1. Adorable card! What a great thing to use scraps and not have to cut into new paper. I need to do that more often! Love the cute image and the papers you put together. It all works wonderfully with our sketch! Thank you for joining in on our challenge at Cards in Envy!
