Boys Will Be Boys

Boys will be Boys is the new theme for this fortnights challenge at Try it on Tuesday and as usual it's up to you what you make for those men in your life, also with Fathers Day just around the corner, it's also a good opportunity make a card if you haven't already.  I've gone with a masculine card that could suit lots of occasions depending on the sentiment which I will add later.

I started with a Kraft base and added some script and ledger stamping and added a couple of labels  and some stamped tickets.  My 'gent' is sitting on a suitcase that was cut from a paper napkin.  As he looked as if he's about to set off on his travels, I added the Sizzix mini Globe, cut from a textured silver card and coloured with Alcohol inks.

The rest of the team have some fabulous inspiration for you, so please pop over to the main blog to see and you will also find all the challenge details.
