I love Coke a cola!


I had another card to make for my friends Mum for her grandson and when I saw the challenge over at Moving Along with the Times it sent me down the road of the innocent days when our 18 year olds liked to drink of coke and it was coolest drink in town! Not like today sadly. I am entering this into 3 challenges and I have used the brilliant image of this teenage boy from Daisy May sheet no 173. He is so cool and just suited this card perfectly.
1. Moving Along with the Times - sketch and childhood memories
2. Sketchy colours - red and black
3. Die Cut Dreams - red, black and love (the love of a granny, you can't beat it!)
Image - daisy may sheet 173
Medum - distress inks
Papers - made on my computer
Embellishments - fibres and dangling numbers

Hi Pinky,
What a fabulus card for a teenage boy. He looks really cool. Love the paper and the image is great.
You'll have to make a Scottish version with Barrs Irn Brew instead of coke Lol.

This is great Pinky and you have captured his "coolness" brilliantly. I know what you mean it is such a shame that they all want to grow up far quicker than they should.

Fab cards as usual Pinky.

I used my Boutique shop stamp the other day and remembered your recent card, so I pinched your idea of adding a footpatch outside the shop - hope you don't mind :-)
