Hey hey! It’s color challenge time at Create with Connie and Mary! This week it was a challenge indeed! I struggled because these colors scream BOY to me and I was stumped!


So, truth be told… I have never made a boy card. Ever. I have two girls and we are all flowers and rainbows over here! So I went out of my comfort zone and did things a little different. No flowers. No bling.


I used the Mini Treat Bag Thinlits for my “you” and the “rock” is from the Crazy About You stamp set. Of course the star here is the Gorgeous Grunge. And that’s it. Easy doesn’t even cut it! But it’s bright and boy-ie and my mind can rest from scrambling on what to do with the color combo!


Unfortunately my blade is dull on my Paper Trimmer but I like the way that it roughed up the edge of the card stock! Ha! Now I don’t feel so bad about forgetting to put blades on my last order! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! If you’d like to see some other great cards using this color combo pop on over to Create with Connie and Mary and if you’re up for the challenge, join in!

  1. I love that card! I don’t think I’ve ever seen Gorgeous Grunge as the star of the show before, it’s usually a great background addition. I think this card could work for any age boy, and it’s not got cars or tools or robots on it, so it’s a little bit different for a boy too. Great work on thinking outside the box!

  2. So much fun! This is perfect for an older guy…you know, the college age boy that doesn’t want to admit he likes cards! Going to save this in my favorites for one of those days and randomly send to my son! Love it!

  3. Wow, Bridgette, what a creative response to this challenge, especially thinking “boy”! Your use of the grunge set with the “you rock” sentiment makes for a perfect boy/guy card. Love it!
