One for a Boy

I did warn you that there would be another of these cards using my Woodware stamp, this one is for my youngest son to give a friend.


As this one is for a boy I've used much brighter colours and kept things quite simple with minimal embellishments.  The papers are from the Basic Grey Hey Boy collection and I have used my X-Cut star die and an X-cut punch to cut the star embellishments, I have added 3D Chrystal Laquer to the small stars.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

A Creative Romance - One for the Boys
Wags 'n Whiskers Challenge 129 - One for the Boys
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Milestone Birthdays
Paper Minutes Challenge 321 - Stars
Stampavie and Friends Challenge 221 - Boys
Paper Crafting Journey - For that special Man!
Left of Center Challenge 31 - Card for a Male
Through the Purple Haze Challenge 41 - Anything Goes (Optional twist: For a Male)
Paper Crafting Challenges Challenge 10 - My FAVES!!! (My favourite stamp)

Thank you for calling today, I promise there will be no more of these for a while!  Please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

With these colors and patterns you've succeeded in giving this stamped image a great masculine feel! It's a tricky age group to make cards for, so I'd say this stamp is a real treasure!
