Too Girly?

So, as I've mentioned, we have quite a few birthday parties to go to this summer.  I made this card for a friend of my 6yo.  He took one look at it and just said "nope, that's a card for Maya!"  Ok, so maybe it's a little too girly for a boy who's turning 7 but I still think it's cute!

The card base is So Saffron and I've also used Neenah Solar White and Soft Sky.  The patterned paper is Sassafras Lass Sunshine Lollipop.  I stamped the bird from Pun Fun with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Neenah Solar White and colored it in with Copics--I can't remember all the markers used since I put them away before I took this pic.  I've decided that even though I have 8 different yellows, I need a few more in the yellow family since I don't have any Saffron or Mustard yellows :-)  There's a tiny bit of sparkle on the beak and the band of the hat that were added with Copic Spica Glitter pens.  The focal image is matted on Soft Sky and then attached to the card base with has the patterned paper attached to it.  I added a row of piercing above and below the patterned paper block on the right and finished it with 3 dewdrops in the bottom right corner.

So, maybe it is a little girly but I still like it and I've got a card ready for one of the kids' female friends :-)

Thanks for visitng and come back soon!
