One For The Boys

Good Morning Bloggers!
There's a new challenge live over at 
This month, the theme is One For The Boys!
Here's my card

The image I have used is the fantastic
from one of this months sponsors

Grab a Banner

We are also sponsored this month by 
 I'll share a card using one of their fantastic images a bit later on!

A closer look at the image!
As soon as I saw it, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!
I used a matt black card base then used white linen embossed & matt black
 cardstock to matt & layer.
The image was printed onto the linen CS

The sentiment is from Craftwork Cards
I added matt of black cs cut with a circle nestie.
The sprinkled a few stars which were punched from black glossy finish CS.

I also decorated the inside of the card.
I was thrilled with how this one turned out, it was exactly as I pictured
it in my head! Something that doesn't always happen for me! lol!
I hope you like my card & I can't wait to see what you create!

  18. GREAT card, Dawn! Love the silhouette image . . . and love the background! Though I can't tell if you used an iridescent type paper or if you used something like a glimmer mist. Whichever it is, it has an AMAZING effect . . . and works so PERFECTLY with the image. Thanks for stopping by this week at Hiding In My Craft Room for our "black & white +1 color" challenge. Hope you stop by again soon!!! (And Good Luck!!!)
