Christmas for the Boys

The OSAAT challenge this week is a card for the boys.  And it's also Christmas card week.  I used the sketch and free image from ABC Christmas Challenge and then combined the recipes from Corrosive Challenge and Christmas Cards All Year 'Round since they are very similar.

Since this is a card for a young guy I thought I would get a bit industrial and included some hex nuts under the brads and used a washer for a charm.  I think my days as an industrial designer are numbered!  I'm way too much a girly girl.

There is a ribbon threaded through the plaid paper and the bear is paper pieced digitally. 

Thanks for visiting and have a blessed day!

Challenges I will enter

 ABC Christmas Challenge:  sketch and free image
