This is my second week as Guest Designer with The Crafty Pad and today the challenge is Let's see something for the Boys! Debbie gave me this gorgeous 10 Pin Bowling image which I have coloured with my promarkers. I matted it onto the scallop circle which I coloured to match. The card itself has been embossed using my circles embossing folder. I finished with the word strike made up from glittered letters. I coloured a green circle to match and popped it behind one of the letters.
I would like to enter this into
2 Sisters - embossing
Cards for Men - boys and their toys
Inky Impressions - shape it up
Charisma Cardz - clean and simple
Stampin with the dragon - anything goes
Fairy tale challenge - at the movies (Kingpin)
Phindy's Place - shaped cards
Be sure and pop over and check out The Crafty Pad's new images  (a lot of the images are only 59p) and the gorgeous cards by the design team. There is also an amazing tutorial showing you how to make your own watermark!
Welcome to my two new followers:)
