Hi Everyone,
Today's card is using this sketch from TGF.
Have used a Basic Gray paper which is more of a sweet girly paper to create this boyish card.
I think it does look like a card for men....have used blues , greens brown  and a metallic brownish colour.Wanted it to look totally different for the flutter Anya card ( which uses the same BG paper)
I have used 3 different pattern paper that goes well together grunge them up a little, to keep it simple I just emboss the 3 flowers and add a bling to each.The 3 ribbons tied together creates an interesting bow to match the 3 leaves.
Have distress the paper with crushed olives ,added 2 metal feather ,some puff pillow hearts and green bling.Wanted to keep it simple ... Love this sentiment from by Ali Edwards

here's a close up of the pic...sorry its a bit blur

Have added glossy accents to his hair part of his shirt, shoes and dotted the center of the flowers behined him too.Stickles have been added to his pants.
