One for the boys

I don’t think I have ever enjoyed making boys cards as much as I did using the new releases from Lili of the Valley – they are just fantastic to work with and a dream to colour.  Don’t forget they are on sale tomorrow so get there quick before you miss out, I have a feeling these are going to FLY!!!

I have used the gorgeous So Sophie mini edgy pad (I think) Bo Bunny – love these!  I have splodged Picket Fence Distress Crackle paint around the edges of the paper after I stitched them.  The Adage Ticket by Tim Holtz also got the splodge treatement lol. 
The image has been coloured with distress inks and twinkling H2O’s.

The buttons are a mix from Basic Grey and also from my stash.  The bulldog clip, string and sentiment sticker is from a Cosmo Cricket kit from QVC that I have had a while.
I am entering this card in a few challenges:
Creative Inspirations – distressing
C.R.A.F.T. challenge – Blue and green (there’s a touch of red so hope the card is okay)
Crafty Catz – One for the boys
The Crafty Pad - male card



Thanks for stopping by,
