Quick card for a boy


I needed a card for an 8yr old boy, and had no time to make it, so I've been lazy and used a printable coloured image and matching paper... I've had this stored on the computer for so long I've no idea where I got it from - I always save images under the company name now, but when I first started I was a bit more random.  Anyway, I've just printed the image and paper onto linen card, shaped the image corners with an inverted punch, added a Craftwork Cards sentiment and that's it.... super quick, but the birthday boy seemed to like it :o)

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Apologies again if I've not managed to visit you yet, I'm catching up slowly - you're all too fast!

Great card Lisa! Love the image and the papers. My printer sadly would never do justice to a pre-coloured image. I wish it would as as you say sometimes time is not on your side!
