Red, White and Blue

I just got back from a wonderful 2 week stay on the island of Kos. I really enjoyed the holiday, but it's sooo great to be back home! I've been without internet access during my trip, and I've missed blogging, crafting - and sleeping in my own bed! I have one more week off, so I'll have plenty of time to do whatever I want next week!

I'm "warming up" with this male birthday card in red, white and blue, and a bit of kraft. The image is a Teddy Bo digi, which I've colored using Promarkers. I've used 2 DPs for his card. As for decoration I've used 2 ribbons, twine, 3 buttons, a star sticker, a star metal charm and a ticket with sentiment. I finished off my card adding doodled lines using a black pen.

This card is for these challenges:
1) Charisma Cardz - #25 1, 2, 3 Recipe (1 image, 2 DPs, 3 buttons)
2) Delightful Challenges - Red White and Blue
3) A Gem of a Challenge - #85 Male Birthday
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
