TLT - Male Theme Pami Style

It's TLT Time - and this week it is "Pami Style" and she chose a male themed card.  Um, just a week or so ago I mentioned how much I struggle with male-themed cards; but I tried Pami, I tried.

I used Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge as my layout; but let off the ribbon/scalloped piece to keep it more 'manly'.  I thought this image worked GREAT for a young man's b-day card!

The image was colored with Copics, this image actually has a circle with a heart on each shoe and on the backpack; I actually punched circles out of DP and adhered in place.

Yeah, I'm in love with these new images from Ladybug Crafts Ink, Shoes 'n Bags - LOVE.THEM.ALL...and YOU.NEED.THEM.ALL!  :D  I think I've used these "Shoes 'n Bags" images the last 4 weeks...tee hee, can't help it, LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!

Thanks for stopping by, be sure you hop over to the TLT Challenge Blog and join us; great prizes to be had and we LOVE seeing all your creativity!

...backpacks and birthdays...
Hugs, ~M.

Fabulous card Michele. Can you believe Pami made us make a male-themed card? Shame on her lol! You really did a wonderful job. This image works great for a male card and I love your papers and layout too.

That Pam is really throwing her weight around these days...might have to review her position hmph! Anyway...your card is flabulous Michele...I've only seen The High-top done in girly colours and you totally rocked this covering the hearts with circles (though I'm sure a guy would love the hearts too)Love it! xx

Great job Michele! I love the sentiment you used and the covering up of the hearts was so simple but yet gave the image a whole other use.
