Something for the Boys at The Crafty Pad

Good evening crafty friends, I hope you have all had a great crafty weekend.

Today brings me to this weeks challenge with ...  

and this weeks we are getting in touch with our masculine side with ...
#154 - Something for the Boys

Again this week I am using one of the new releases from The Crafty Pad Designs called 'Bowling - It's a strike' that is available in either a colored or un-colored version. 


I could not resist mixing some stripes and spots with stars and circles on this card.  Today they all just seemed to click into place and go with each other. The spots I have embossed and then highlighted with some distressing ink, the bowling ball embellishments I made from some scrap brown glitter card-stock that I punched and then used my eyelet tool to add the finger holes for the balls.  The stars on the top right I have added some metal wire to and laced with a knot at the top and the admit one tickets are from some Kaiser Papers that I had left over in my stash (I think the up up and away series range). 
This week we are being sponsored by the lovely

I love this - it's the first time I've seen you make a flat card, I think. The glitter bowling balls are so cute! I think you've sold me this stamp - I need it for my bowling league.
