Brown and Blue

Hello everyone!!! Is everyone getting ready for the holidays yet?  Well me and my other half are stickin' to our plan and shopping early this year! So I spent yesterday shopping for some gifts! sheesh gifts sure do add up quickly huh $$$ lol
Anyhoo... I finally got around to making my card for Wild Orchids challenge.. Brown and blue.. I thought this would be a good time try try and make my first boy card! I'm always buying girly stuff and I realized I don't have much for boys... hmmm... I guess I need to start buying stuff.
So the ENTIRE time I'm making my card today I kept telling myself  " No flowers, No bling, no flowers, no bling" Ha ha well... I finished my card,  loaded my pictures, edited them and realized I was so worried about it NOT looking girly that I didn't Even use a wild orchid product!! sheeesh! I almost went into a panic until I remembered I had purchased some of wild orchid's Raffia ribbon! whew totally saved the day! So my card ended up with a bow which I guess I'm OK with.. I still like how it turned out..
Today I used a stamp by Gillian F Roberts called fishing fun. If you haven't seen these stamps your should REALLY check them out they are sooooo adorable. I colored my image with my Copics and I used my cricut machine to cut out the little fishes.

I added a little bit of diamond glaze on his jar w bugs and a TINY bit of stickles on the dogs collar.
I'm really loving that raffia ribbon... good thing I got a bunch of colors! haha
 Thank you everyone for taking the time to check out my blog today! 
And thank you to my friend Cheryl for giving me a shout out on her blog yesterday! My followers have doubled!!! thank you to everyone who added themselves as my followers list it means a lot to me!!! XOXO

Cards for boys can be soooo challenging...LOL! It's so tough to not add the bling ;D This card, however, turned out wonderfully and you stayed true to your boy card theme. Awesome work, girlie! Hugz, Cheryl
