One for the boys

I made this for my friends little boy who is turning 8 on Valentine's day and he is totally disgusted at having to share his birthday with such a lovey dovey day lol. So I thought I would make sure his card was really boyish! He loves playing the psp and playing football so this is what I came up with. It is for a few challenges;
1. Stamping Boutique - followed their sketch and used their image
2. Rosie D's - Male card
3. Quixotic - tag it
4. CRAFT Challenge - colour a digi
5. Paperplay -birthday card for someone special
6. Charisma Cardz - think male
Papers - made on my pc using pics of psp games
Image - stamping boutique
Embellishments - punched circles, ribbons
Medium - Distress inks
I can only used my distress inks on my digis if I spray with a fixative first, it works wonders and I use one called Ghiant Ink.Jet fixative spray Matt finish.

Tius is a cheeky chappy. It's great to see an image that actually looks happy - although there are some great images out there, most off them do have sort bewildered looks on their faces. Great card Pinky.
