Another SSDS Challenge: Boy! oh Boy!


I have another card for SSDS's All about the Boy's challenge but this time I used a more grown up boy. This time I used Unscripted Sketches' sketch from 8/15/09. I also used Colour Create's color choices of Blue, Sand, Silver and Black. I think every color is fairly easily recognizable although my "sand" color isn't real sand (the button came out darker in the picture). I used my prismacolor markers to color the free google image of the guy in the trenchcoat. Rasberry Ribbons wanted to see circles so I got out my Cuttlebug Circle embossing folder and inked it up with silver ink. I even managed to use all solid (non-patterned) cardstock like Pile it On 10th challenge requested. 2 Red Bananas also wanted only cardstock and except for the button, I did (their examples also have some small embellishment so I think I'm OK with the button).
Thanks for looking,
