100% All Boy

Happy Monday to you! I am super excited because in three days I am leaving for New Orleans Jazz Fest! I can't wait to be sitting in my chair listening to incredible music and chatting with friends! Not to mention eating the best food! Crawfish Monica, seafood tacos, crawfish strudel, oh yum!
But on to my card that is based on Card Patterns sketch #60.

I used a new Cutting Cafe file All About Boys. It has 55 images of some really cute boy stuff!
I used scraps of paper - I think it is Creative Imaginations? I hand cut a star to mimic the stars on the paper from Bazzill cardstock and punched a red circle to mat my sentiment on. The fiber is navy blue yarn a friend sent me which I attached a button to with floss. Lastly, I added a few rhinestones. I hope that's okay for a boy? I rarely make boy cards. I have two nephews and their birthdays are coming up so I thought I would use this one and create another to give them for their special days. Really not sure about the boy thing? I knew it would not be good to add flowers and big bow so opted for the yarn and button. LOL! Okay off to work I go. Thanks for stopping by!
