For the Boys!

Well, seeing as Father's Day is fast approaching, what better theme for this week's Bugaboo challenge at Catch The Bug than:
IT'S A MAN'S WORLD
I have seen these shapes around for a while and so have had a go. Again, I felt the need to play with the measurements to make them easier! Have stuck to 1 inch and half inch increments to make this card blank:


The image is from the A KIDS VIEW SUPERHERO range. I love this character and have used him quite a bit! The green panels were stamped with a little star using distress ink. The 'My Hero' sentiment was also using a PTI ink set (the Star Prints one) and is actually 2 different stamps. The border on the bottom was punched using a Martha Stewart border punch.


Of course, with it being a Bugaboo Digi Images blog, we'd love for you to use one but it's not essential. If you are new to digis or want to try before you buy or simply looking to expand your Bugaboo collection, remember that there is a freebie available every Friday. Head on over to the shop now to pick up this week's one. And make sure you visit the challenge blog at CATCH THE BUG for all the details and more inspiration from the Design Team.
