Anyone for Cricket?

Today's card is for a colleague who likes cricket, and was appropriately made to cover my DT sample for Crafty Little Fairies, where the theme this week is For the Boys.

Well, anyone who reads my post often, will already know that there are 3 crafting themes that I find especially difficult ...

     1)  Masculine cards
     2)  "Colouring" white (usually reserved for snowman)
     3)  Clean and Simple Style

I'll say no more.




Card Recipe:
I've been inspired by:
  • LOTV Challenge - Name That Tune (Can I get away with "Hit me with your (rhythm) stick" by Ian Dury & the Blockheads!)  :0)
Happy crafting
Annette

Hi. Well it certainly is masculine, the colouring of his whites is brilliant and it´s lovely and C+S.
I think you´ve hit the nail on the head. It´s a really pretty card.

This is fab Annette and you've conquered the your " difficulties" brilliantly!! You could have coloured the kit though, he might have been playing in a one dayer (Oh yes, I know all the lingo!!). I must be dopey, have never thought of colouring white ribbon!! xx

Great CAS card I find white space a bit daunting! Great image and fab colouring. He looks so cute in his 'whites'! xx

Great card and I don't think you'll find those things difficult anymore coz you seem to have conquered them now.
