A Card for a Dude!

Update: Yay! This card made Top 3 at Dude Time Doodles!

Good Evening bloggers

Just a quick post to share a card I made for my nephew's birthday. He's at that awkward age as far as choosing somethinng appropriate to put on his card....too old for 'cute' but not old enough for rude or cheeky!! So, I used a fab topper from my buddy Debbie over at CRAFTY STASH featuring his starsign, Leo. You can buy the whole set of 12 zodiac signs for just £2.50 HERE. You should also check out the other wonderful downloads available whilst you're there too!

 I followed this week's Dude Time Doodles Sketch

Here's a closer look at the image, which is mounted on a lacey circle nestie ad has been layered up and decorated with blue gems.

 I used my fab shapeability grommet tag dies for the sentiment, made using a free font called Kentucky Fried Chicken!!
 As it is a fairly plain and simple card, I decorated the inside too, using the leftover bits of BP and card.
I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Have a fab evening everyone :D
