Make It Masculine
Good morning everyone, wow what a busy weekend it was. It was my eldest son's birthday, Liam turned 12 years old and apart from Swimming, playing Soccer and Cricket his passion is to read about World War I and II as well as following Manchester United Soccer Team and of course the
New Zealand All Black Rugby Team.
I finished Liam's birthday cards late Friday evening, I had purchased this Vintage Spitfire from Delicious Doodles and thought that this was the perfect image for him. I really pleased how his card turned out. but for the life of me I wasn't sure what I would use for the embellishments especially for a boys card and at that age you can't use flowers. I looked in my local scrap booking store but they had nothing I could use, so I came home and made some my self.

Today I'm entering my card into Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge which is

I made this to represent the the Medals and the Air Force Stripes that have been awarded and are on the Pilots lapel.
