Anything Goes at Anything Goes Challenge

Good morning blogging friends...

Hope you are all enjoying this beautiful sunny weather we're having at the moment. Just hope it continues into the school holidays.

I'd like to give a big warm welcome to my new followers and thank all my visitors who take the time to write such lovely comments. This then means that I can hope on over to your place and return the compliment.

I'm back today with the new challenge over at Anything Goes, and this week it's

Anything Goes

A nice and easy one. So whatever floats your boat!

This is a card I've made for my Nephew. They're tricky these boys aren't they. How do you embellish a card when a 19 year old won't want flowers, ribbons and lace!

I chose Mo Manning's Johan as he loves playing the guitar. Not sure my sister loves it, especially when her hubby joins in on the drums!!

I've coloured him with my usual copics.

Skin : E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20
Case : C9, C7, C5, C3, C1
Coat : E11, E13, E15, E07, E09
Jeans : B91, B93, B95, B97
Jumper : E40, E41, E42, E43, B000, B91, B93
Bag : YG61, YG63, YG67
Hair : E21, E23, E25, E29

The papers are actually Christmas ones from Dovecraft Back to Basics Christmas. They've all been distressed with a TH tool and Walnut DI.
I've kept the embellishments simple by just using some twine, Wooden buttons, a guitar charm, a TH ticket and a Magnolia cloud die.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges.

Here come the Boys - Anything Goes
Pink Gem Challenge - Spots/Stripes or both
Sweet Pea Stampers - Men and Boys
A.R.T. Challenge - Masculine Birthday

Happy Crafting.

Big Hugs,
