Little boy blue...

I decided to make a boy card for a few different challenges this week and I found this adorable image free to download from HERE, what a cutie eh?!! My papers are all from Nitwits and I have distressed and glittered all edges - boys can have glitter too!!!

I have used Promarkers and chalks to colour my image... buttons are all from stash...

...I painted the stars with crackle paint and glittered the edges...

Challenges entering with this card:

The Sweet Stop #58 - Sketch

Creative Inspirations - Distressing

Aud Sentiments - Its your day...

Dare u2 didi #38 - one for the boys

Simon Says challenge - blue, green and brown

Promarkers - anything goes

Thankyou for looking

Big hugs

  17. Awww!! I have a weakness for Precious Moments :) Your coloring is AMAZING!! It looks just like a Precious Moment print!! The buttons are so perfect for this little card. (I could gush all day about this card!!) :)

    I love yours and your Mom's cards. I hope you guys will keep joining us at Aud Sentiments. I love seeing your creations.


  18. Wow Emma,
    I absolutely adore this card. I wouldn't have thought buttons, glitter and distressing would have looked so good on a little boys card but it really does! It looks so masculine aswell as dainty and cute. Buttons are one of my favourite things to have on cards and scrapping pages, I just adore them.
    Great job creating another masterpiece Sis!
