La La Land Crafts Dots & Spots

It's all about the Spots and Dots over at La La Land Crafts this week. Team Friday coming at ya! ;) This is my second post for LLLC and I'm having a BLAST so far. All of the girls are just awesomely inspirational, I can just tell these two months are gonna go by far too fast!!

Anywho, this time round I wanted to make a boy card. I don't know if you seen my Pollycraft post earlier this week, but I gotta stop being a push over and get those male themed cards in my stash built up!! Fisherman Luka was the perfect answer.

I paired this cutie up with some Pink Paislee papers which arrived in my GDT kit earlier this week. Seriously.. Irina ROCKS! One of the reasons I hold back doing boy cards is because you can't embellish them so much. But I dunno, I ain't done half bad with this!! I've added some interest around the image panel using a detail stamp, added some ribbon as well as a snap and some brads!! Heyyy! ;)

Head on over to LLLC now to check out what the rest of the Friday Team have got for ya! ;)
