Boy's best Friend :-)



I made this card following the lovely sketch by Maggie on the Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge
, I only found this a few days ago so unfortunately I missed the first one !
The image is a digi download from the Digital Stamp Oasis, so I know that doesn't count for stamping but the 'Best Friend' was stamped using a hero arts set so I hope that's OK if not just scrub my name off :-)
It also qualifies for the Cupcake Crafts Challenge whose theme this week is a 'Card for a Man or Boy' Well this one will be going to a special boy on Post Pals later this morning :-) I made this as a shaker card with gold/silver hearts and stars inside ( I didn't have any thing else ! bones would've been nice !! ) :-) I thought a child would like to give it a good ol' shake :-) !!
When I started this card I coloured it first intending it to qualify for the Color Create Challenge too, am not sure if they expect more Green/Blue though, so again if it doesn't qualify just scrub me off :-)
I did make this for the ABC Challenge too whose theme was M for Metallic but I forgot to upload it yesterday so I missed the deadline ! duh !!

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
