Let's hear it for the boys - Harvard Boy

Update from 20/06/2013 - This card was included in the TOP3 @ Manly Men, Scribbles Designs Challenge.

Hello lovely peeps!

There's a new challenge starting off at Totally Paper Crafts and it's theme is "Let's Hear It 4 The Boys!". As for me, it has always been (and maybe it will always be) some kind of personal challenge to create a card for a boy.
I don't know why... Maybe because I love pink and violet, and red and fuchsia, that I just don't think "brown" and "blue". What about you?

Anyway, a theme is a theme and a challenge is a challenge, right?
Here's my card:


I used a Mo Manning digital stamp, "Harvard", which can be found here.


Here's the list of Copic colors used:
Hair + Pants: E70, E71, E74, E77
Shoes: W5, W3, W1
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13, E02
Paper + Shirt: N2, N1, N0 + Blender
Sweater: YR18, YR14, YR12, YR01; Y38, Y35, Y13
Books: YG67, YG63, YG61; YG95, YG93, YG91

The envelope on the front of the card may be pulled out and there's a little tag for a personal message inside of it:

The inside:


All of the tags may be pulled out:

  10. חמוד ברמות. הצביעה שלך מקסימה.

    נראה לי שאתגר האמיתי בשבילך יהיה כרטיס עם חותמת אחת והרבה רקע לבן :-)
