Taekwondo Boy

I've made this card for my son's birthday, he is really into Taekwondo and Korean Kick Boxing at the moment and I thought this little image from LOTV would be just right.  I coloured the image with ProMarkers and used purple core'dinations card stock because his belt is currently purple with a gold stripe.  I have followed Donalda's sketch over on this weeks LOTV Challenge.

I used my Spellbinders Large Pinking Circles to cut the image, mat, sentiment and corners.  I first saw these dies over on Edna's blog 'Another day, another card', they're really good for male cards.  I stamped the sentiment onto core'dinations card stock and had to emboss it to make it show up, unfortunately it hasn't photographed very well.  All of the edges have been distressed and to finish I added some buttons from my stash.  Full details of everything I have used are detailed below.

I have decorated the inside of my card to match the front.

Image:  LOTV Karate Kid
Papers:  Hocus Pocus and Beach Bum        
Card stock:  Core'dinations,
Tools:  Spellbinders - Large Pinking Circles and Ric Rac Diamond Border 
Embellishments:  buttons and raffia from stash
Sentiment:  LOTV Circular Sentiment

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