on a scale from 1 to 10

Hi there…
a “simple” boy card for the start in my new room.
So annoying.. I wanted to use some red buttons on the bottom right corner but of course they are not here.. sometimes I am so stuck in my head with a certain thing that I want to use, I hardly can move forward with out it. So after trying several things out without really liking it, I took the key and went into that large container in our drive way. lol… nothing was there to get to easily, so I gave up on my red buttons for this card.
The image is from the new released Lili of the Valley boy line (May 2012) I did a little TLC to the ball, I tried to hand sketch the lines for a soccer ball in but as previously blogged about I am NOT a good “doodler” at all, so the ball got polka dots instead. A Copic Mulitipen in size 0.05mm works really well for that purpose.
Since boy cards are always harder to embellish, I went with a fun interactive card style. It’s fairly easy to make the instructions can be found at Splitcoast. – this one is made same sizes as the wiper card was made over there but I have made just recently for Magnolia ink a larger kind to accommodate a standing Tilda (Banana Tilda – Limited Supply Challenge) and it worked well too.
Stamps: Lili of the Valley “Goalie Saves
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley & Stampin up
Papers: Magnolia – You are the Winner – line through Sir Stampalot
Ribbons misc embellishments through The Ribbon Girls
Stickles – Diamond (Grass) and Stardust (Ball)
