Passion for Promarkers - Add some Metal...

This card came in the Top 3 at As You Like it Challenge - thank you so much ladies!

Good morning, lovely peeps! Okay...who's going to own up?...Was it you?...Did you steal the last fortnight?! These days are just whizzing by at a phenomenal pace - I seem to turn around and another week has passed by, yet if you asked me, I couldn't tell you what I've done!?! I'm looking forward to the Easter holidays, which don't start for us until Friday and we're hoping to take Daisy out again at the weekend - if only to switch off for a couple of days.  But for now, it's Tuesday...so you know what that means?...
Yep! It's the start of a brand new challenge over at Passion for Promarkers! This week we have the lovely Julie in the hostess chair and she's give us a theme of 'Add some Metal' - so think charms, brads, pins, or even metallic papers or metallic embossing. We're being sponsored by Crafty Sentiment Designs who are offering one lucky winner 3 digi images from their online store...
We were lucky enough to be able to choose an image to work with, so I decided to ditch the pink and girly and go with something for the boys...
This is Henry - Why Not and I loved his boyish attitude! I coloured him up with my Pro/Flexmarkers and went with a black hair colour (something I don't do very often but which turned out rather well!) I paper pieced Henry's T shirt and the papers and sentiment are from A Year in Cards and Another Play on Words.  I found a fab metal star charm to add my 'something metal' and a strip of silver metallic linen too. No glitter, NO SIGNATURE 3 PEARLS - just a simple boy's card, which I think is perfect for any little man...but then I'm biased!...until tomorrow, because that's how fickle I am when it comes to my crafting - love it today, not so much tomorrow and completely disenamoured by the end of the week!?!
Right, what's on the agenda today? Looks like it may have to be ironing - one downfall to this nice, Spring weather. Have a terrific Tuesday, whatever you're up to and I'll be back soon to share the cards we made in class at the weekend...

I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges :
Fave colouring medium and Why? closes 6th
This is a no brainer - has to be my Promarkers! I love the vibrancy of colour that they give and find that no other medium gives the same finish. I do like to have a go at watercolouring but wouldn't want to be without my trusty pens!
Anything Goes closes tomorrow
Anything Goes - optional twist 'Add Metal' closes 6th
#41 Anything Goes closes 14th
