Just for the Boys!!

Eventually I finished this card...this is the 3rd attempt..first one was too big for the card, the second one was a bit naff...Helen at work asked me to make her a card to give to her boyfriend...mwah mwah ...ooh they're so sweet!! I have made this quite plain all grey, blacks and white which was the requirements Helen gave so it fits a few challenges. I coloured the image with copics and added some white coarse glitter to give the beer a frothy look and layered it onto grey card and patterned paper which I had in my stash...finished with some stars which I cut with the sizzix...oops nearly forgot...

It's an easel here's the inside too...

Paper cutz - stars

Totally Papercrafts - easel card for the boys
