Boys & Their Toys!

Happy Wednesday all!
Today, I'm sharing the card I made for the new challenge over at
This weeks Challenge is  "Boy's & Their Toys"
I think that's pretty clear, don't you???
Here's my card!

Oh no, I've done it again, another square card! Sorry!
This is Larry Lane & he loves to go bowling but, 
sometimes in life as we all know, Split Happens! lol
The sentiment is part of the Larry Lane Set

I coloured Larry with my trusty Promarkers then cut him out with a 
square nestie, I did a bit of shading with a flexmarker but I'm not sure 
if you can see it on the photo's.
The digital papers & embellishments are from the 
Ten Pin Kit at Peppermint Creative
I also added some little ribbon tags which I secured with brads 
which have been in my stash forever!

The inside of the card has a bit of decoration too!
The border punch is by Martha Stewart

Here's a side view!
