Dude. (CIC265)

Come join us at Cupcake Inspirations for our new challenge!

Lawn Fawn is sponsoring our challenge this week.

They are offering a stamp set and 6x6 paper pad of our randomly chosen winner's choice. Wow!

Thank you so much, Lawn Fawn!

This week our challenge is to use FOR THE BOYS.

Tie Cupcakes from Cupcakes Take the Cake

It's usually a challenge for me to do 'masculine' cards but lately, I've been on a roll. I loved this 'Skateboard' image from Kenny K. I colored him up with my Prismacolor pencils two times. I fussy cut one of the images and added them layered over the first image. I love the 3D look this method gives. (**I have a tutorial coming up about how I do this...)

The papers and letter stickers (Kelly Purkey) are from the Simon Says Stamp Card Kit Club for May. The hemp is from my stash. Didn't stamp the inside because I figure I can use it for a thank you or a birthday card.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.

    Thank you so much for joining our May Challenge Here Comes Summer, over on the "Just For Fun" Challenge Blog.

    Totally brilliant fun, bright, colourful card. I'm not sure it's 'summery themed' however the colours are certainly summery. Love that image and the papers.

    We offer monthly challenges with nice and easy themes. I hope you will pop back and join us for more of our future challenges...
