A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge - Boy Card

Here's my submission for this week's A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge. The theme is to create a male inspired card. I don't have any Rachelle Ann Miller, Sugar Nellie and/or any of the adorable Hanglar stamps on my growing wishlist. But I have some stamped Sugar Nellie images I received in a PIF from Bernie - thanks again - which I will use for these challenges.

I've used and slightly modified the sketch from this week's Friday Sketcher's Challenge and added an element from Becky's DT sample on this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Becky flipped the right corner of her dp over and added a brad. I thought the flip was pretty cool so for this card I flipped the same corner over but added a button for embellishment instead of a brad.

I find making a male card the most challenging from what image to choose, what dp works and what embellishments are considered gender neutral or masculine enough. For this card, I used Stampin Up CS, K & Co. DP, Copics for colouring, Paper Studio buttons and an SU rub-on sentiment.

Hugs,
Maria
