Paper Sundaes Challenge #42 - For the Boys

Happy Sundae!  Today marks Paper Sundaes 42nd Challenge & it is a fun one!  The theme this week is "For the Boy's" and is being sponsored by Simon Says Stamp!  If you haven't shopped there you should as it really is a one-stop shop!  Be sure to play along for your chance to win a gift certificate to their store!

For my card I used the image "Skater Ian" by The Greeting Farm & made a card for my son.
It was so much fun to make!  I used paper from Bo Bunny called Xtreme Teen and coloured the image to match with copics.  I embossed the cardstock with these cool new folders by Sizzix from a pack called Plaid & Snowflakes.   I love how deeply they emboss & can't wait to use the snowflake one for some Christmas cards!  I embossed the cardstock and then wrapped one with some black twine from my stash that I have probably had since I started scrapbooking/cardmaking many years ago.  Boy was it nice to finally use it!  Other supplies used:  Glitter Brads by Recollections,  and Foam glitter stars inked with black memento ink.  Hope you like it!

Make sure you stop by the Paper Sundaes Blog to meet the new Sundae Girls!  Their work is fabulous & I'm looking forward to working with them.  

My card will be entered into the following challenges:

Cards For Men Challenge #22- Anything Goes (as long as it's for a male).  This is for the only man in my life, my son!
Moving Along with the Times Challenge #70 - Card for a Child (made for my 10 year old son)
