I know I am not the only one who struggles with making cards for boys/men, why is that? Anyway it took me a while, but I came up with this one for my nephew. I followed the sketch from this week's challenge at Passion for Promarkers . I also used autumn colours as requested - just squeaked in for the challenge! And as I used a dragon image I have also entered the challenge at Craft Your Days Away where this fortnight's theme is 'With Wings'. I wasn't sure how to embellish this one as being for a boy I didn't think flowers were an option. So I opted for some green chipboard shapes that I found lurking in the bottom of my drawers - they are supposed to look like claws, not sure if anyone will realise that , lol!
