One for the boys


Funky Fairys challenge this week is 'One for the boys/men'



I sometimes find that boys cards can be difficult, especially when they get too old for cutesy teddies! This card uses an image from Pink Petticoat and while it's still cute, it's kinda cool too! The background paper is from my scrapbox, I think it was left over from an old Sweetwater kit. The image is mounted onto textured green card and I made the frame from a scrap of blue card I had left over after cutting a square scalloped mat with a Nestabilities die. Waste not want not! I added some brads and doodling to the frame before mounting it on foam pads. The stamped greeting is from a set of clear stamps by Woodware.
