FunkyHand Monthly Challenge

Wooohoo I'm back..............I know I bet you didn't believe I would be. I'm on a roll so don't stop me now. This challenge card is for the Get Funky monthly challenge. September's challenge is as follows...............
Two Little Boys
Both my boys have their Birthdays in September - Jacob will be 4 and Samuel will be 6.
So my challenge is to make a boy themed card, layout, project or what ever you fancy as long as it is aimed at a boy and uses a Funky Hand paper or extra.
I have used the gorgeous Edwin holding a bunch of roses for this little card, but as it wouldn't be cool for a boy to be holding the roses I did cut them out. I have layered the clothing on Edwin with papers from FunkyHand, they are from the Salt and Pepper collection. I have used the same collection for the whole card.
I tried to keep this card as cool as I could, as we know the boys don't like the frills and pretty colours like us girls!! I've tried to keep the same theme for the inside of the card, so I hope it can stand up there with the rest of you crafty ladies.....
Papers - FunkyHand Salt & Pepper
Peel off from my collection...Sorry not sure where from
Image - Edwin from Magnolia
Embellishments - Papermania
Right I've passed my record of one post a day, I'm off to do some channel flicking..................Take care Nettie.x
