Birthday Boy - Crafty Addicts Challenge 10

Hiya Crafty Friends and Bloggers, another fortnight passed ... where are the weeks going? If it keeps going like this, (ssshhh) ... ''C'mas'' will be upon us!!!  Today I am here sharing with you my latest DT project for The Crafty Addicts new challenge which has started for the next fortnight. Our theme as always is ''Anything Goes'' or with a twist of  ''Card for a Man''. We have two sponsors this challenge and they are Doctor Digi's and Crafty Sentiments . For my project I have used Crafty Sentiments image Henry (Why Not), isn't he sooo cute!!?  Here is what I created ... been a while since I made a boy/male card, makes a great change!!

Printed image onto watercolour card, coloured and carefully cut out. Layered brown and gold card with backing paper on a 6x6 white square card blank, then added a strip of the same card and a contrasting backing paper accross the center. I placed the image on top along with stars die cut from gold and brown card. Finishing off by adding buttons on the stars and then the tiles.
