Masculine Kids Card

Just when I figured out how to combine "paper crafting time"  and "work hours".....my scheduled hours at my job, got changed...Grrrrrrr. Back to the drawing board, I suppose it will take a few weeks to get into the "swing" of the new work schedule.

I combined two challenges for this card because I thought it would be easy...Who was I kidding?? The Dynamic Duo Challenge uses two colors...pacific point and basic black, with the dessert option of making a 'kid themed card'.  Ann, the hostess for The Paper Players is challenging us to make a 'CAS masculine' card. Well boys are 'kids' and they are also 'masculine'.....easy peasy you say....well this was not the case. When you add that elusive 'CAS' to the mixture, it became a little more difficult for me. Three days later I finally completed this card. Keep in mind that last Wednesday I completed a card in 5 minutes and 15 seconds. Boy oh boy what a difference a week makes!



The paper pieced image from MFT was colored with Copic markers and Prisma colored pencils. I even added a few brush burns on the arms, cuz my kids always got bruises where ever the protective pads weren't!! lol





Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.
