Crafty Catz Challenge: One for the boys


I'm currently away glamping in Devon, UK so this is a scheduled post! I'm typing this with crossed inky fingers that the schedule function works...

The Crafty Catz are back after a short well deserved break with a new challenge! Our wonderful Christine would like to see masculine cards and projects, hence the name 'One for the boys'.

But before I show you my card I'd like to tell you who the sponsor of this week's challenge is and what you might win, if you are lucky! If you don't win there's always a TOP 3 for our favourite contenders. 
The very generous sponsor is.... can visit their store by clicking on their above logos... 


7 images of winners choice

How cool is that?! 

Now onto my card... 

The image is called 'Peaches Car' and was coloured in using my colour pencils. I think the pencil drawings nicely match the distressed Core'dinations cardstock panels one of which was embossed using my 'Notebook' Sizzix folder. I also added my sentiment using the GlitzCraft 'It's a Boy - Girl' Stencil and the Aqua Blue Glitter Frosting Paste. I tied a light blue satin ribbon around my front panel, made a bow that I attached using a double sided tape (a small piece) and adhered the entire panel to a dark turquoise square base. A voila! 

I hope you like it! 

Now if you hop over to the Crafty Catz blog you can not only see my team mates' wonderful inspirational creations for this challenge, but also find a Linky tool where you can upload your own masterpiece. Feel free to leave any comments, we always like to hear from you! 

Have a wonderful weekend! I'll be back next week to tell you about my glamping trip ;) 

Best wishes,
