Friday Sketchers - My Guy

Hi everyone!
Woohoo - it's Friday and I can't be more thankful it's the weekend! I love the sketch over on Friday Sketchers today which is hosted by the lovely Carole. I've had new rubbah arrive in the mail this week and one of the things was this fabulous 'My Guy' set from The Greeting Farm. I adore these images - just perfect for the older/teenage boy.
I went with a colour combo of brown & blue for this card. I coloured using my copics and I paper pieced his shirt (paper is Chatterbox). I made the tag from a piece of kraft cardstock, spritzed it with water on the back and crumpled it up. I then used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink to add some interest and used my distressing tool around the edges. The arrows are a Cuttlebug die cut which I distressed with Faded Jeans and sanded with my Tim Holtz sandblock. The sentiment comes with the image set.
Thanks for your visit today, you are always so welcome and I love to see you here! Hope you have a fabulous Friday and start to the weekend!
Hugs,
Danielle x

Oh this is great. Love the no frills of it. It is so hard to add embellishments on boy cards but you have done a fantastic job to make it look fantastic.
