Male card

Finally got my Charmed Cards Mikey digi out, perfect for those male cards we all struggle with. This is for an 18year old who likes music, well among other things lol. I am entering it into three challenges.
1. Sketch Saturday - followed the sketch, its a lovely one to work with
2. Dotties World - Have leaves somewhere in your card (stamped mine)
3. 2RedBananas - Behind the Scenes -create your own background paper (I stamped some plain green paper with black leaves)
I made the circle letters using a little set I bought in the sale on Saturday for making your own brads, one of which is on this card with the 18 inside it. You get three circle punches, lots of brads and the sticky bits to go with it. It had 75% off so only cost about £3! Great for punching circles if nothing else!

Image - charmed cards
Papers - funkyfairies digi papers
Medium - distress inks and h2os
Embellishments - brad, faux stitching

This is a great card for a boy Pinky. Sounds like you got a real bargain there. The circles look great, so much nicer than peel off letters. Marianne x

You do the best male cards here in blog land, you should have given me a shout I was cleaning the kitchen cupboards inside and out, would have preferred an hour in belfast to take me away from it, did you get anything nice? I have got the e-bay bug again I knew there was a reason why I had'nt been on for a while, I have been sitting with a card in front of me for 2 days now just cant seem to get it finished.
