Boys cards can't be beat

As a mother of 2 boys, I always need cards for males, so I'm really happy to have 3 cards to add to my stash for later use. Each of the cards uses Basic Grey "Oxford" papers and embellishments plus kraft card blanks.


Basic Grey Challenge - anything goes
Here Come the Boys - lots of layers
Eclectic Ellapu - masculine
Daring Cardmakers - hot chocolate (totally inspired by the colour
Lollipop Ladies - nerds


Card #1:  Feeling Sketchy - sketch
Card #2:  Tuesday Morning Sketches - sketch
Card #3:  Seems a Little Sketchy - sketch
Inspired By - picture inspiration (picked this set of papers/embellies because of the school supply inspiration)
