Bearly Mine Challenge - 5 June 2012 - How charming

Today sees the start of another challenge at Bearly Mine and it is time for Team B.  The challenge this week is "how charming" so you need to use a charm on your card.
This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Kenny K Downloads.
I decided to make a Father's Day card and used the Kenny K's image called "handyman".  I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and then die-cut it out.  The backing papers I have used are the Boys Zone by Bearly Mine Designs and I have layered various papers.  I then put some pieces of pearl card through my Cuttlebug and a cogs embossing folders.  The card has been finished off with a sentiment off the computer, various tool charms (spanner, wrench and pliers) and some washers, screw and nut from my husband's stash of DIY goodies.

Please make sure you pop over to the challenge blog to have a look at the other creations from Team B.
