Showcase Monday and a Winner

Here's my DT card for Showcase Monday at The Townscrapper. I chose to make a 'boy' card today, which is more of a challenge for me than my usual 'girlie' card. But Zeke, 'the dude' made it easier for me. He's a new Victoria Case design, exclusive to The Townscrapper and you'll be seeing a bit more of him in the next little while as the DT introduce him. He's a tween with an 'attiDude' and 'whatever' seems to be his favourite word - lol.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:
  1. Create4Fun Challenge ~ Sketch
  2. Papertake Weekly Challenge ~ Open Theme
  3. Simple Doodles - Add some layers
Thank you to all those who left a comment over the Easter weekend. The winner of the Magnolia stamp, 'love sealing wax' is Debbie at Crafting Fairy. Congrats Debbie and please email me your address so I can mail out your candy.

Here's a close-up of Zeke: Don't look too closely cause I'm not happy with the hair so will need to keep working on that part of it.

I think his hair is great, looks shaggy where the highlights would hit if his hair was messed up. I really like this layout simple and balanced just like me ( hahah)
