Here Come the Boys ..

I have to make a few cards for men (and boys) this week so I'm entering this one into the new Here Come the Boys challenge where it's "anything goes" to get started.
The image is Fishing from A Passion for Stamps and I've coloured him with Promarkers.
I'm not sure if the little bucket of fish shows up too well in the photo, but I added glitter to the fish and they sparkle.
The embossing folder is from the new Forever Friends range used on Cored'inations paper and sanded a little to show up the boats better.

Here Come the Boys ....anything goes
Divas by Design....anything goes  (it's their 1st challenge, too!)
Creative Inspirations ...embossing
Moving along with the Times...anything goes
Papercutz...anything goes
Papertake  anything goes
Totally Papercrafts...glitter
