And here is another card!

Firstly can I just say a big hello and thank you to Sandy O for following me - it's lovely to have you on board!  I have had a busy weekend - have had a good sort out in my craft room - will post some pictures on my next WOYWW post and have also done a layout and a card over this weekend too!  It's all go here I tell you!

Here is the latest card:
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Daring Card Makers whose challenge is a patriotic theme- so I have used red, white and blue colours
Sketch and Stash Challenge this time sketch no. 7 and its all old stash - nothing new on here!
Delightful Sketches  which is distressing (although very minimal distressing on here for me!)
Moving Along With The Times which is Anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday which is use any sketch (not sure if I can also enter the cards I made on 28th and 29th to this too or whether that is backlinking?  would be grateful if someone from Cute Card Thursday could let me know please).

I know it's a very plain and simple card for me but lets face it you've got to be in it to win it!  Have not done much shading or embellishments as I don't know the child that well and I think it might just end up in the bin so I couldn't bear to spend hours on it (you all know how it is I am sure!).

For the card I have used red, white and blue cardstock, Maya Road cog chipboard, silver embossing powder, bubblegum embossing powder (this is from the English Stamp company and is great for a little boy as it smells of bubblegum!), Stampendous Robot stamps, Heidi Swapp chipboard number and the promarkers used were Ice Grey 1, 2, 3, 4, Cool Grey 4 and Grey Green.

Thanks for looking :)
