I love these papers, as they are wonderful masculine colours without being dull and drab; and not all sports related. I think this card fits in great with 'Created Byhand Challenge's weekly challenge, which this week was to use patterned or fancy papers.
I used DCWV paper for the background, the suns are drawn with prismacolour markers and faber castell pens, then cut out and decoupaged onto the ATCs.
I think these ATCs fit perfectly with this weeks theme on 'Theme Thursday' challenge blog. This weeks theme..'Hat's.

I also love visiting challenge blogs and one of my favourites it Arty Girlz, there theme this week is a 'Hint of Pink', so i thought i would combine both challenges.
So here is the card i made, i used some lovely Dovecraft papers which have a 'Hint of Pink' - my favourite colour, as well as lots of black and white. It's my hubby Stewart's birthday next month, so i wanted to create a special card for him, so i used the portrait i did of him, digital changed it to black and white, and printed it out on standard printer paper. I then mounted it on the circle i had cut out and added a stitching detail to finish the element, i did the same with the smaller circle and added a die cut heart.
I'm really pleased with how this card turned out, using my favourite colour pink, without being too girly, i just hope Stewart will like it.
