The Play Date Cafe #72

Welcome back to another fun week at the Play Date Cafe!

 Sarah Anderson has chosen a really strong and vibrant colour scheme for us this week....

 

 I used the computer to generate a 'seven' template, which was cut out of some Kaiser 'rewind' papers, and mounted on black cardstock.


As this card was for a boy (and he is ALL boy), I was a little worried about the pink aspect, so thought I would add some dog tags and introduce the pink that way....



Don't forget to stop by the DT blogs for more inspiration!




We have a fabby guest designer this week, who is a regular follower and player at the Play Date Cafe..... please welcome.....  
       

 And we also have a fantastic sponsor this week...


 ... who is offering up this fantastic prize....

Let's get a crackle on and see what you come up with this week!

Products Used: Kaisercraft 'rewind' papers; black bazzill cardstock; machine stitching (white); 1" circle punch; chain' pink eyelets; Tim Holtz vintage market die.

Wow, what an amazing boy card! It's always difficult to make male cards, I think anyways. But, you made a GREAT one! Love the added dog tags...too cute...LOVE IT!!!

That was smart to add the pink on the tags....we don't want that little boy to be 'grossed out' by too much girly stuff, right? LOL

This is a perfect boy card to pay tribute! Love the outline of the seven and the dog tags are an awesome touch! Great work!
