Less is More ~ masculine cards!

 for my Whimsy Blog Hop post please click here!
The theme on Less is More this week is
masculine cards!  Obviously, while adhering to the other Less is More guidelines!
Keeping it very simple, I stamped my Lily of the Valley 'Top Chef'' and coloured him with 
Prismacolor pencils then die cut around him with a Nestabilities die.
There is still plenty of room for a sentiment when I eventually decide what this card will be for!
*************
My 10 year old son decided he wanted to do some colouring so he grabbed my spare image and crafted along with me!  
He is just learning the shading technique and I think he did a fabulous job!
He has started his own blog here!
Thank you for dropping by, hope you are having a great Saturday!
