Sailing Boat..........

Good afternoon I half made a card late last night it was really late hence only half finished lol. I've had a fab weekend just spending it with Craig & kids playing on the xbox & watching movies.......what could be better.
This afternoon tho I thought I would get my card finished & colour up my image, yes I usually colour my images 1st but for some strange reason I didnt. I've actually made a male card & I thoroughly enjoyed it.
A talented blogging friend has been inspiring me, inspiring me so much I had to buy some more stamps lol. Vicky is so very talented.....no its not an imaginary friend if you dont believe me pop over here to see her beautiful cards.....they are all sooooo stunning I love 'em.
So here's my boy card. Ingredients will be at the end...

This is 'Sailing Boat' from LOTV  & I followed a fabulous sketch.


The inside to compliment the front but kept it basic.

Coloured with Copics.
E00 E01 E11
B00O B00 B02 R46,  W0 W2 W3 W5 W7
E31 E33 E50 E51 E53
B93 B95 B97

Dark brown A4 card & Kraft card from my stash also the charm & buttons are from my stash.
Papers are the 2nd new set of Websters 'Spring/Yacht/Country' which are perfect for this image.
Papers, Bakers Twine &Card Candy are from Crafty Emma's.
The star I cut out of Kraft Card & then placed 2 rub-ons on it which I found in my folders, I always forget about them lol. The star & the corners were edged in walnut distress ink.
The edges of the card & the paper were cut with a wavy line with my 12x12 CC cutter, I always forget it has that function, would you believe it was hubby who reminded me lol.
Well I'm off to finish tea & quickly link this up. Will be blog hopping straight after my hungry hoards are fed.
See you all soonies, thanks soooo much for stopping on by.
Challenges I'm Entering......

I always struggle with boy cards. I never know what papers to use, what image to use ... And they never turn out the way I want them to. *sigh* You however did an excellent job with this card. I really like it and I got some ideas. Thanks for the inspiration!

Hugs!
