Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight

Over at Crafty Cardmakers Spotlight we have a fab new challenge for you this fortnight. Make a card for a teenage boy.

I always used to shy away from male cards especially teenagers  but I've found the more you make the easier they are.

I used a gorgeous Someoddgirl digi image that was a freebie a while back. How cute is he? The papers are DCWV. I've coloured this little dude in with Promarkers, Derwent pencils & Sansador. I used Spellbinders Labels 11, which I extented as it wasn't quite long enough. The letters are from a Sizzix alphabet die set and I then embossed them.The border has been punched with a Martha Stewart punch and a strip of DCWV paper layered over the top. I then added a couple of stars cut with Spellbinders Stars Nesties, a stamped Birthday and a brad from my stash.

Our prize for this is a set of 4 American Crafts Mini Marks rub ons which are...

Jack Jr (blue)
Jack Jr Sidekicks (blue)
Frank (white)
Frank Sidekicks (white)

These include handy rub on letters, numbers, phrases and accents useful for cardmaking, scrapbooking and journalling.

We would love you to join us for this one and whilst you're over there check out my lovely teamies amazing creations.
