a challenge for a friend!

Earlier on this week the lovely Linda Simpson asked if we would enter the kraftyhands challenge - I only have one crafters companion stamp and this is it... I cannot enter the challenge though as it is ribbons and lace! Luckily my Josh is at a birthday party this afternoon and he needed a card to take with him... so I decided to make this card anyway!

A close up of the image that I have coloured with my promarkers and then outlined in grey...

I have added some shading to the image - this is something that I am practicing and I think I am getting better... I have inked the edges of the panel and I have added a panel of black and then a panel of red to the background. I have added a piece of spotty DSP to the card blank and also inked the edges of this... I added 3 card candi to the top left of the card and a number 7 to the right...
The sentiment is Stampin' Up!

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:
gem of a challenge - a boy thing
di's digi challenge - back to school
emmas crafty challenge - back to school

with the boys back at school that means peace and crafty fun!
I hope you like my card and thanks for looking... As always your comments are appreciated...
Happy Crafting!
