Dutch Dare Challenge #16: A card for a boy/man

Last Tuesday I went shopping with the girls.
Ruby was very easy going and liked everything. At one point I had to say to her that we had more than enough for the time being. Britt was angry because she couldn't have a icecream and didn't like anything. Very frustrating. After one hour running in and out a lot of shops, we had bags full of clothes for Ruby and nothing for Britt. When we were back at the first shop I told her to pick something or we would go home with nothing for her, suddenly everything she disliked before was 'so cool'. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!
Both are very happy with their new clothes and I'm hoping we don't have little wars at morning when I ask Britt what to wear today.
Enough about the kids and shopping. Back to today.
This weeks challenge on the Dutch Dare Challenge is to make a card for a boy/man.
I think these are the most difficult card to make. and the ironie of this is: I made this challenge myself.
But I've managed to make one.
Papers are from My Mind's Eye, chipboard sentiment from a local Dutch shop, and the little star is drawn by hand.

Hope you all have a great day.

xoxo Karin

Nice story! I wish my mom would have done that with me. She used to pick the clothes for me and wouldn't give me any option of what she bought for me to use. My dad was the one to give me those options and I would jump of joy with having choices. (Maybe to tell her that you would pick anything you liked would have made the trick too.)

The card is just beautiful! I can make cards for men/boys as easier as girls. Just that not always do I own appropriate papers. I do hope people like the one I did.
