Watermelon Wally - PSC83

Happy Wednesday friends!  It's good to be back this week.  I had to take off last week because of the window installation which went very well by the way!  It only took them 4 hours which was amazing.  But more about that later.  It's been a bit stressful since then.  The house is still not put back in order.  Some male friends are coming by Thursday night to get the window coverings back up.  Then I'll be able to start unpacking everything and getting it all put away so I can get back to business.

Getting on to the business at hand.  This week our theme is For the Boys!  You are to create a card with a masculine theme. Your card can be for a Big Boy or a Little one.  Don't forget to include a sentiment on the front.

Here's my card:
Materials Used:
  • Image - Mayzy Art.  This was a freebie given out last year in Through The Craftroom Door magazine.
  • Sentiment - Computer generated, printed in Dark Bllue
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up - Night of Navy and Real Red; Xpress It Blending Card
  • Designer Paper - Authenthique - Glory Collection
  • Accessories - Stampin Up Large Star punch and Small Star Punch; white star brad and white star glitter sticker from my stash; Red hemp twine from my stash; Dimensionals
  • Copic Markers - B0000, B41, B45, B97; BV11; E01, E11, E13; E71, E74, E77, E79; G12, G20; R01, R22, R24, R37, R59; W00, W0, W1, W3; YG0000, YR000; Multiliners 0.1 and 0.03; Signo White Gel pen
I can't forget out fabulous sponsor this week - Beccy's Place who is awarding 3 free digis to one lucky random winner this week.

Now, I invite you to check out what the rest of the Design Team has in store for you.  You can follow the links on the left side bar or just hop on over to Perfect Sentiment.  Then haul out  your inks, cardstock and stamps and put something together for the challenge this week.  Good luck!
