Well, Im back on track making cards for boys again.

Like most, I guess I find it so much easier to make cards for women and girls. You can really go all out with the embellishments and ribbons etc. But with boys it's not so easy even harder for men.

I wasn't sure how this card was going to turn out. I coloured this image "Zoom"  from Mo's Digital Pencil Shop with my water colour crayons last night and wasn't sure how I planned to use it.

I stamped the background with stars then added the punched corners. At first I had a white brad in the corner of the punched corners but that didnt work so I used the blue star eyelets instead.

Then I added the orange and blue stars to the other corners but it still looked kind of flat so I added the faux stitching to the stars and punched corners.

I'm really happy with the finished product.

Thanks for stopping by today.
