Who said pink was for girls!!!

Hi folks happy Monday to you all! Its a quieter day here as my son has gone back to school but I still have my little girl at home until Wednesday.

Anyways about a week ago I was lucky enough to win a spot prize from Sugar Nellie and I received this cute little fella in the post...Isn't he adorable and such a dream to colour. Anway as soon as I received him I knew I was going to make by youngest brother's birthday card with him and then I saw the fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl with the added theme of black, white and pink for inspiration. Well I then got thinking that my brother actually likes a little bit of pink in fact his favourite shirt is pink so I thought I could squeeze a little into the card just for an accent. I didn't have any matching buttons so I vaguely remember seeing somewhere about making your own (sorry can't remember where but if I do I will put the link in). All I did was to cut out with my 'bug' some circles in matching colours and then I punched two holes like a button and glazed them and when dry put the layers together. I must admit I quite like them and at least they match. The sentiment was made using peel offs which I happen to have loads of as it was one of the first things I bought when I first started crafting but they don't get used much now!
Papers - DCWV black/white stack
Card stock - Bazzill/papermania
Stamp - Sporty manga from Funky Kits
Medium - copics
Lastly I'm going to enter my card into a couple of challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - Fab sketch and colour theme
Create 4 Fun - Colour theme (black/white + 1 other)
Well folks thats all from me, hope you're all okay and I'll catch up with ya soon.
Take care.
