Card for my brother- which will mum choose?


Mum asked me for a card for one of my step brothers, but I'm never sure what kind she wants as her tastes changes week by week, last time for my one of my other step brothers she took a dragon, but you never know with my mum. I decided to hedge my bets and give her a choice.

The first one is a dragon, a fab Dustin Pike freebie and one of his high hope sentiments. I'm not sure if pink is ok in small amounts for a male but I just thought it went well with the green on my dragon, who looks so cute and helpless floating along.
This card I want to enter into the following challenges:-

Doodle dragons- grown male card
Donnas Den-happy birthday
High Hopes-anything goes(hope the sentiments enough to enter)
Sketchy colour-colour challenge,green,blue and pink
Crafty Ho's-fab layout


My second card I made for mum I did non cute and used one of my fav sentiment stamps, it just makes me smile. It's from a set by the darkroom and is fab for older birthdays.

The card I used the stamp man background map and I used promarkers on a darkroom car, as they dry quickly they give a worn out look which just seemed right fot the card style.

I decided to go monochrome for this one too. I am entering this card into the following challenges:-

Paper Romance-easel card
Craftilicious-monochromatic
Sentimental sundays-fav sentiment
Creative card crew-easel card

In case any of you wondered , mum went for the car card, suprises me every time.
