Have Fun!

I hit both of the Monday Split Coast challenges with my guy birthday card - the CAS challenge was a sketch and the Technique Challenge (guest hosted by Vicki Dutcher- whoo hoo GF!!!) was to use piercing. A great design for all those boys-kids-guys in our lives don't you think?!

I pierced the top corners and along the bottom edge - connecting the piercings with a drawn black line. I sponged the clouds using my hand made cloud template. The punch is EK Success.


On the inside of my card I repeated the punched panel and stamped the zig zag background in the same color as the card stock, overstamping the sentiment in black.
Thanks so much for stopping by today!
