Elzybells Sketch Challenge #23

This is the first time I've entered a sketch challenge, but I loved Elizabeth's sketch from and I needed to make a card for my nephew - Happy Birthday Harry!! So I thought I'd use the sketch and enter the finished card in the challenge!
I stamped the boy yo-yo twice, watercoloured with distress inks and cut out the cap, t-shirt, trousers, shoes and yo-yo from the second image and placed them on top of first image with 1mm and 2mm foam pads to give a 3D effect. I stamped the sentiment with black ink and broken china distress ink and punched it out with a circle punch. Then attached it with 1mm foam pads. The card candy (backless brads) were attached with silicone glue.

I've been making a lot of boy cards lately, mostly through necessity as I've got 10 nephews and only 3 nieces :) Still love to do girly cards though :)
I got side tracked with this card as it had to be mailed today but will have more pics of my TR album soon! Not enough hours in the day!!
