Friday Sketchers - One for the Boys

I l ove the Party Animals set of stamps by Whiff of Joy - they have been so useful for making those dreaded men's cards that I find so difficult (and I'm getting to all the male orientated papers that seemed such a good buy at the time - you know the one's don't you lol).

I'm entering this card in this weeks Friday Sketchers challenge, it's a fab sketch by Bea. I really loved working with it especially as it's the second non-square card I have made in a week!! I'm beginning to like these lol. Surprise surprise - not! I've gone with a blue and brown colour combo again.

The stars are cut with a Sizzix die although I had to trim the blue layer down as it was too big for the layers I wanted to build. The copper brads were orginally teal, I heat embossed them withcopper embossing powder (only cos I didn't have brown - but like the subdued bling the copper gives).


The inside - plain and simple and perfect for the fella's. The sentiments are from a Stampin Up Sale-a-brations set - Congrats, and I think is going to be so useful. Thanks Monica xxxx
