One for the Boys

Hi Everyone,
So sorry I have been a little quiet lately, but I am back today with a boy's card.
Now I would like to enter this in the Lili's Little Fairies Challenge of Anything goes and if you know me I normally would avoid a boys card at all costs lol. So this was my little challenge to myself.
I have had this super cute LOTV image for a while now and he hadn't seen any ink so I just had to give it a go!
It's not that I don't like boys, it's just that I find the girly card so much easier, but I'm very happy with the way this card turned out.
This little guy is called Astronaut and you can find him HERE along with all the other gorgeous LOTV stamps. The image coloured with copic markers and prisma pencils and  is cut out with SB labels three.
The DP is from Nitwits Spaced Out Collection, and the ribbon is from my stash. Can you see the little stars ? they are chipboard and I painted them and then while the paint was still wet I sprinkled some white hologram embossing powder over them and used my heat gun to melt it. They don't seem to look much in the photo , but irl they are really sparkly and pretty.
Here is the inside designed to match the front. All the sentiments and the little stars are from Gina K Designs stamp sets.

  1. G'day Cheryl, well I must say your boys card is super aaaaaaand I'm going to be very brave and brace myself for lots of hate mail 'cause I don't like boys much at all myself! when I was pregnant (both times) I told myself over and over that I was gonna have girls and girls I had lol.
