Boys Will Be Boys

That is our theme this week at the Kraft Journal - any masculine card.  I am blessed to have seven grandsons.  This is a card I made for one of them.  He has a new spotted dog so I thought this would be a good card for him.  The digital image is one of DearieDolls.  She sure has some cute ones.

I started with Brown Kraft for the base.  The puppy paws are embossed onto Light Kraft card stock with a Darice embossing folder.  Then I sponged on a little distress ink to emphasize the paws.  I love the Natural Hemp Cord at the Kraft Outlet - all the colors,  but the natural color is my favorite, especially for masculine cards.  It is looped around the Black Polka Dot Twill Ribbon and then I just knotted three more pieces onto the one that is over the ribbon.
The image is cut out with Spellbinder Oval and colored with Copics.
 The Kraft Journal challenge runs from today until Sunday pm.
