One for the boys

With a husband and two sons at home you'd think I'd be inclined to make more masculine cards but no it's entirely the opposite - I hardly ever make cards for boys and only have a few boy images which I've been given from crafty friends. I really like this one although I don't know what it's called (?).
I coloured the image with Promarkers and mounted it on blue pearlescent card and tied some sparkly green fibre down one side. The snowflakes are glittery paper die cuts and are held together with dinky Basic Grey brads. The sentiment is Stampin Up.

This is for the following challenges:
Dutch Dare - Christmas
Pixie Dust Studios - Let it snow
Sassy Studios Designs - Non traditional Christmas colours
Shirley2Girls - Holidays using glitter & bling
Freshly Brewed - Sparkle & shine
Little Red Wagon - Die cuts
Cards for Men - Masculine & Christmas
Stamptacular Sunday - Blue Christmas
