Today's challenge over at Delightful Challenges is one we all dread, but if your like me & always need a card for the male of the species it was perfect & to be honest I loved making it....mmmm not sure why but I think it might be the bright colours I have used & of course the fab image!

Great card! I hope you didn't 'dread' it because it is a boy's card, maybe you didn't mean it that way (?)
I think boys things rock but I guess I'm a little biaised, lol. Thanks for joining Feeling Sketchy this week :)
