Pink Gem Challenge - "Birthday Card for a Boy"

Good Morning Crafters, well its my turn over on Pink Gem Challenges to host the Challenge, and for my theme I decided that we should create a "Birthday Card for a Boy" and we do have some really special images at Pink Gem Designs for young lads so do please pay them a visit and see for yourself.
As always we are sponsored by Janet of Pink Gem Designs.
 And we are so lucky to be able to choose any images to play with and this was the one I chose.

This little chap is titled "Josh with his Puppy" and you will find it here, I printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used a Nestabilitie Die to cut it out and a larger one for the mount out of blue card. I have done the same with the sentiment.
The card base is a 6.50"x 6.50" white card with a first mount out of blue card and the papers I have used are also from Pink Gem Designs and this one is titled "Slugs and Snails" and you will find them here. I have used three papers from the design set, the first is a blue background with images of the puppy on it, the second is a blue paper and laid across the card, the third is a stripped one in beige and green and this was placed down the card.
The mounted image was then placed in the middle towards the top with the sentiment at the bottom on the right. To finish of I have used some Card Candi and placed them in the top right and bottom left hand corners.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will pay a visit to the Pink Gem Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team to see what they have created for your inspiration and hopefully you to will want to take part in this "Birthday Card for a Boy" Challenge.
