A Spoon Full Of Sugar - One For The Boys

Well over at A Spoon Full Of Sugar they have a challenge called "One For The Boys". I am showing you the last of the 3 cards I made for my son's 18th birthday on Saturday passed.

For this card I used Basic Grey's Lime Rickey paper. I mounted all my sections with random colors of cardstock to match the colors in the Lime Rickey paper. I used an image from the fabulous Emily at Stamping Bella, called SK8R Boy. I colored him with my copics, and cut him out and the mat with one of my Nestibilities. I used some rhinestones I had laying around on the sentiment, but on the image I used some blue baubles for the wheels and around the edges.

On the inside of the card I use the goop punch from Martha Stewart and cut out a co-ordinating paper from the Lime Rickey collection and had it drooping down. Again the sentiment is from Stamping Bella.

We're looking at rain for the next few days with a lovely weekend ahead. I'm off to the ole' Inspiration Room tomorrow for some more creating.

Happy Wednesday to you all.
Hugs xx

Hi Carolyn,
I love the contrast of the stripey paper and the one with circles. Great colours and a really cute wee boy image. The punched border on the inside seems so appropriate for a boy card Lol.
