Imagining he's Harry Potter

This is my second boy's card today and I have an update on Pollycraft. Paula is till going to be selling some of her fabulous digis once Pollycraft closes. You will be able to buy them at Little Miss Muffet. Isn't that wonderful news.

I do love making male cards just as much as girl's cards and when you have an image as adorable as this one, how hard can it be. I absolutely love this image, LOTV do boy's images so well, but I have only used him once, shame on me. As I sold that card I thought I would make another. The papers are Prima Yoth Collection and they and the the image have been inked with DI Wild Honey. I have used Promarkers and Flexmarkers and a Sakura Goldstar pen. The wording was left over from my Harry Potter scrapbook pages and is from Creative Imaginations. I added some punched and crimped Woodware stars.
