For the Boys challenge card

Well, over at A Passion for Papertrey, they are having a challenge "for the boys" - to create a card for the guys.

I had been playing with the PTI Iconic Images for the PTI Make it Monday challenge (you can see that card here), and had an idea rattling around on how to use the set for a boys card, so figured I would give it a go.

I think it turned out really nice! I used nice bright colours of ink and cardstock from Stampin'Up - Pacific point, so saffron, wild wasabi - to keep it fresh and boy like.

I cut coloured strips of CS in different widths, then played with them until I got a look I liked, and stamped the image across the top of the strips of paper. The greeting I stamped in basic black.

Love how it turned out!
