Bling for Boys?

Just a little.  Usually I use brads or some other non-glittery embellishment, but I think these dark blue gems are okay for a little boy.  Can't believe that a couple of my grandchildren are heading off to school on the 13th of August.  That is so early. Shouldn't school start in September?
  This is the card I made for one of my grandsons who is going into Kindergarten.
This cute bird with backpack is by Doodle Pantry.  He is just one of many in the set.  (I added the glasses because my grandson wears glasses).  As you can see in the photo below, the set comes with outline and colored.  I love the colored version.  Love the way Laurie colors them and it makes it so easy for us when we don't want to take the time to color.

Make sure you check out the Doodle Pantry Challenge  which runs til August 25.  Free digital set just for playing!
