Paper Sundaes Challenge #57 Masculine Colours

For our challenge #57 this week over at Paper Sundaes  we are asking you to use Masculine colours on your card.  I've been told it doesn't have to be a masculine card just using boyish colours is OK too.  I decided to make a masculine card and you would think that with having only 1 child (a boy) I would have ton's of boyish type paper but I had to go shopping :)  I picked up a large paper kit by My Minds Eye called Complete Boy so I'll be set for a while now!  Speaking of shopping.....our sponsor this week is the our monthly sponsor Simon Says Stamp and they carry so many wonderful items including the Greeting Farm image Skater Ian I used on my card:
I used a Mcgill Punch for the the tab with the sentiment and coloured the image with copics.  Have you all seen the new 2011 copic colours?  I can't wait to get my hands on them!!  I was super lucky to have won a challenge recently over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog and was going to hold out and use my gift certificate for these however I ended up purchasing the whole set of 36 Tim Holtz distress inks so I could try my hand at watercolouring next!  I can't wait for them to arrive.  I hope you have a fabulous Sunday and play along with us in this week's challenge :)
