1st Boy Card of 2012

I've seen a couple of challenges this year so far that I wanted to enter and so I coloured this Whimsy Stamp from Angel Crafts up especially for them.
I'm told that I'm not bad at boys cards, and I must admit I quite like doing them - if you know me, you'll know that I'm really not a girly girl, I was always more of a tomboy when I was a kid - I certainly find them easier than the whole pink flowery thing.
Anyway, I'm sure you're not interested in me waffling on here, so here's the card....
 Image: Teen Idol, greeting is from Film Strip Sentiments and I also used the matching Film Strip die , coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers
black and white card from The Papeterie, Tim Holtz filmstrip ribbon. And of course the distressed edges were done with the Distrezz It All.
I'd like to enter him into the following challenges:
Enfys' Going Buggy Challenge - grey white and red
PfP - Thankyou
Fabulous Friday - no patterned paper
Cute Card Thursday - something new (stamps)
Sisterhood of Crafters - black white and 1 other colour
Deep Ocean Challenge - lots of white

This is brilliant - so apt for a boy & I love th whole filmstrip theme. Your grounding of the image is terrific & I love the effect of the differences in tone on his shoes & the pocket of his trousers. His eyes really sparkle with life too.

Being the mother of a teen boy and having great difficulty in make guy cards, I really love and appreciate your card very much. I'm going to have to look at the digistamp website too. The problem is that my colouring skills aren't that great either :)
