Let's Hear It For The Boys!


I haven't managed any cardmaking over the past week and a half due to studying for an exam that I took on Friday (and the less said about that the better lol!) ... but when I saw the sketch for this week's Lili of the Valley challenge, it put me in mind straight away of inking up this celebratory bear to make a 30th birthday card for one of my workmates.

As it is for a man I decided to go for a no frills monochrome approach, and here's the result ....


Recipe:
Main image: LotV "Cheers Bear" coloured with Promarkers;
Sentiment: LotV "Calendars";
Papers: various from my stash;
Tools: numbers cut using Cuttlebug "hippie chick" alphabet.

Challenges:
