Karate boy

Hello everyone, I hope you are all having a nice weekend. It goes by much too quickly, doesn't it?

This card is for my son who has just been promoted at work. I think I often avoid boy's cards but I really enjoyed making this one. Maybe it had something to do with the great sketch and fabulous image.

I thought I'd have a go at distressing. I bought a new distressing tool a couple of weeks ago and this is the first time I've used it. I can see how you might get a bit carried away!

Anyway, onto the card:

My recipe:

Image: Karate Boy by Mo Manning
Coloured with Pro Markers and a touch of Distress Inks
Papers: Boxer by Basic Grey
Cardstock - Coredinations
Silver paper by Hot off the Press
Image: computer generated
Tools: Cuttlebug and Nestabilities Stars
Deckle edged scissors

The stars look black on the photo but they are silver, I promise!

I can enter this card for 2 challenges:
Mo's Digital Challenge - Shades of Grey
Papertake Weekly - Dawny's great sketch

I hope you like it. Thanks for stopping by.
