It's a Boy Thing

To make this card I have used the CD A Year in Cards which you can buy Here on Ella's Design Blog

This is the first card that I have made using it and am very, very pleased with the results.  The papers are fab and the images are wonderful.  It's absolutely jam packed with everything you need to make a card and a gallery for inspiration

I don't usually enter one card into lots of challenged but this one fits a variety of challenges.

Paper Pretties Monday challenge #55  to make a square card

Catch the Bug  anything goes

A Gem of a Challenge #54  to make a card for a boy

Stampin' Sisters in Christ #155  a birthday card

Papertake Weekly  anything goes

Crafty Sentiments Designs  a male card

Paper Pretties Wednesday challenge #222  sport themed

I used one of the four digi stamps from the November collection and three of the four papers.  I edged all the papers with a Tim Holtz Distress ink pad

There are quite a few sentiments to go with this (or any other) card but I chose to use a stamp of my own

Materials used

A Year in Cards cd-rom from Ella's Designs
Tim Holtz Distress Ink pad
Backing card, dark blue and green, from stash
Happy Birthday stamp, I think it was in a Create and Craft kit
Memento ink pad for the sentiment
