Get Well Card

A friend's husband had a knee replacement this week.  When I saw this image in the Teddy Bo Store (image is Teddy Bo-063) I couldn't resist buying it to colour in and make into a card for him.  isn't he so cute and he looks like he's struggling a bit trying to get used to crutches.  I have coloured the image in with my trusty Promakers, cut it out with a Nestabilities die and then distressed with my Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans distress ink pads.  I have used various pieces of blue scraps of paper from my stash to keep it quite manly looking.  The card is finished off with some ribbon, gems and a Papermania stamp for the sentiment and I have decorated the card inside to match.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Pixie Dust - Boys will be boys
Crafty Sentiments - Punches and die-cuts
Crafts 4 Eternity - Photo inspiration
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Use a lot - gems for me on this one - I think I need some therapy as I have used 8 gems on one card!!!
Mark's Finest papers - Distress our cards
Pile it On - Blue, blue, blue
