For The Boys

It's the first day of the week and time to begin a new challenge with the Roses On Paper and Belles n' Whistles challenge blog!! Our challenge for you is to create a card for a boy or man. We know how hard and tricky it is to create for a guy. The image I have used is Edwin from the recent Valentine Kit from Magnolia.
The sentiment I chose comes from a stampin' up stamp set. I thought it really suited the image well. I've added some raffia ribbon for texture and dew drops around Edwin and to the corners of my card.
Here's another view and look at Edwin. I hope you will join in on the challenge with us! Remember that you can use any stamp from Roses on Paper or Belles n' Whistles to participate. Can't wait to see what you will create, have fun!!
Supplies:
Stamps: Magnolia (valentine collection 2010), Stampin' Up sentiment
Paper: Caramel, Soft Sky CS, Basic Grey Marrakech DSP
Ink: Copics
Accessories: Nestabilities, raffia ribbon, dew drops

It's always a hardest thing for me to do to create a boy/man theme card. You sure make it looks so easy. You card turned out totally awesome :o)
Was so busy and got exhausted, so I took a few days off from crafting. I spent a night with my family and played facial mask and foot soak with my hubby and daughter. How fun and I think I will resume my craft in a day or two. Thank you for stopping by to leave me sweet comment!!
Hugs,
Cabio

Cami said...
