Friday Sketchers - Sketch 8

This weeks sketch over on the Friday Sketchers Challenge Blog has been provided by Beatrix. I needed to make a birthday card for my nephew who will be 15 on the 1st July. I always seem to struggle with male cards so wanted to give myself plenty of time to make it. I used a Sugar Nellie...SK8R Boy, plus skulls and sentiment by Magnolia. The patterned papers are all "Archaic" by Basic Grey. I have coloured to image with my Prismacolor's and blended with Sansador using paper stumps

oooo really like this card. Like the skulls instead of flowers. I did think about a boys card but couldn't think what to do in corners. You're other cards are brill too. I love the cat hanging on the washing line he's real cute. X Vicki
