Cards for boys............

Happy crafty Tuesday everyone, hope you are squeezing some crafting in today, my little man is off to football academy for a few days so I will have a little spare time to myself in between the dreaded, ironing, washing and housework. Thought I would start off with a simple card using the sketch from Sweet Stampin and also following the challenge from Cards for men the theme is "Off on an Adventure"
and had to be a card suitable for a man or a boy..........so here it is. the image is from crafters companion stamps for boys, the rocket was stamped, embossesd, and coloured using pro markers, backing paper from stash, the planets were stamped, coloured, cut out and raised up using pinflair, glitter and embelishments added.......

I have put 6 on it as it's my little has a party to go to in a few weeks so this will be perfect.

Hope you like!! Happy crafting.
Ta ta for now x x
