Father You're a Star

Good afternoon everyone, thank you for stopping by today to see my latest creation.  This is a card I have made for the Teddy Bo Challenge 10 - Teddy Bo Only, I have used the image You're a STAR Bo and coloured it using ProMarkers, to finish it I just added a little Glamour dust around the outside of the Star.  Full details of what I have used are listed below.




For the first time I have decorated the inside of my card to match the outside rather than using a printed insert.



To complete my card I have added computer generated sentiments backed onto matching card stock, my aim was to make them look like little labels, I seem to have a bit of a thing about labels at the moment.



Image:  Teddy Bo You're a STAR Bo
Papers:  ECHO PARK Little Boy
Tools:  Spellbinders Wonky Squares (on the inside of the card)
Embellishments: corrugated card, buttons and raffia from stash
Sentiment:  computer generated

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges.

Cards for men - Someone Special - you can't get much more special than a DAD
A Spoon Full of Sugar- Anything goes
Stamps R Us - Goin' Digital - I used a Teddy Bo digital image 
Craft Us Crazy - something new and/or a favorite embellishment - my ECHO PARK papers are new and I love making little label sentiments to embellish my cards.

Thank you for looking and I hope to see you again soon.

This is gorgeous Pauline - all the ingredients of a fabulous card! Those are amongst my all time favourite papers too and I am a tad fanatical when it comes to buttons and use them wherever I can.Your labels are great and your insert just finishes off a smashing card.

Thank you for joining us at Teddybo this week.

This is beautiful Pauline, I love how you've embellished your card. I'm completely addicted to these images and you've coloured him fantastically.

I too have started decorating the inside of my card to match the front. I've always disliked making inserts and found them really fiddly, so this is a really good alternative for me.

Have a lovely weekend.
