Something for the boys - Mo's Digital Pencil - Kite

Update from the 24/06/2013 - this card won a " Star Songbird" badge at "SongBird Challenges".
This card was a winner @ Eclectic Ellapu Challenge Blog in "B is for".

Hello, hello!

The fact that I've been silent for several days and you haven't seen any post, doesn't mean I have been doing nothing :)) It's just that I've made a couple of cards I still may not post.

Nevertheless, I've made another one which won't be secret :) I've always been making cards with the images of girls and have been using "girly" colors correspondingly, but there are so many challenges throughout different blogs right now, which theme is "Something for the boys" or "masculine", that I thought it could be interesting for me to try something different.

In the online shop "Mo's Digital Pencil" a very cute image caught my eye - the "Kite". I also had a wonderful 6X6 paper pad by Prima, "Craftsman", which helped me to finish my card:

It's an easel card, actually:

These are the Copic colors I've used:
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, R20
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Shorts: E35, E33, E30
Jacket: BG78, BG75, BG72, BG70
Sneakers + T-Shirt: T5. T4, T2, T0
Kite: Y38, Y17, Y15, Y11

Additional details:

I've tried to use less embellishments, as it's a boy's card. Wanna hope I've succeeded :)

1. 'B' is for @ Eclectic Ellapu ('B' is for a Boy)
2. Beautiful Borders @ Saturday Fortnightly Challenges (I've used a border punch on my card)
