Boys will be boys

Hello! Good afternoon!  Well you would think I would have learned from my last expedition to Ikea on a Saturday, but no... I just had to go back today.  Actually it was not quite as bad as the last one, but I think that is because I went to a different store... it was still a madhouse though and definitely not advisable.

Anyway, enough about shopping... I wanted to stop by to share a card I made for the current Boys will be boys challenge at Tiddly Inks this week.  I had a quick look through my images to find something suitable and (shock horror) there were a few that had never even been printed yet!  I chose to use Geekatude because I thought he looked like a real boys boy.

I'm still struggling to find a good place in our new house to take photos without casting a shadow on them... I think I need to keep looking.

Here's my card:

I tried to follow this week's sketch from Dutch Dare Card Challenges, but I'm not sure how well I succeeded...The papers I used are from October Afternoon and Crate Paper and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The Play sticker is from Crate Paper and I have coloured the image with copics (see details below).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Tiddly Inks Challenge #68: Boys will be boys
Carisma Cardz Challenge #41: In stitches (real or faux)
Southern Girls Challenge #29: Slugs and snails and puppy dog tails

Here are the copics I used:

And here's a close up of the image:

Happy Saturday!
