A gem of a challenge new sketch time!

Happy weekend everyone! I would love to say I am relaxing at home with not a builder in sight lol But alas when the builders have the weekend off I go to work! We are having a charity day today too so we are all dressed up 80s style, I'm doing the "fame" things neon leg warmers and all!
Onto todays challenge over at a gem of a challenge and we have a fabulous sketch over there today, please go and check it out! And what is this another boy card from me?! Actually my hand was forced a little as I had my nephew and my friends son both having birthdays this weekend and I lack badly in the boy card stash so I had to get cracking on some more!

I have used this lovely Andy on swing stamp for my card from Pink gem designs and have used papers from Tim Holtz Shabby chic collection. I have embossed the lower horizontal piece with a Tim Holtz embossing plate too and inked in tea dye distress ink.My metal pieces are from stash, although my small gear is Holtzy again.

I have coloured my image with prismas and stamped the edge with a stempelglede stamp. My stunning lace is prima, my ribbon and metal button are from stash. My ticket is Holtz again (a TH overload lol) and my tag is one of those off a kiddy pair of jeans, nothing like a bit of recycling! The little key charm on the tag is 7 gypsies and my sentiment in the corner is SU.

I am slowly starting to enjoy boy cards! I am actually trying to apply the same style and technique I use for girl cards but ommiting the flowers, it seems to be working so far!
I would like to enter this into totally stampalicious buttons and bows, Simon says stamp and show some embossing, Bearly mine Tag you're it, Spoonful of sugar tags, Paper pretties embossing, Cute card thurs for his eyes, Paperplay ribbon, lace and buttons, Craft us crazy anything goes, Sarah Hurley colouring, totally papercrafts one for the boys, frosted designs buttons, crafty catz no pink or blue, crafty Anns embossing and sentimental sundays for the men challenge.
Thanks for coming by my blog again folks and do check out the super creations by my other fab DT teamies!
Hugs to everyone
