For The Boys

This is my take on this week's Mystery Monday challenge at Club Anya & Friends. The image I used is from the Happy Day Stamp Set from The Greeting Farm. The base of my card is spring breeze backed in chestnut brown. I added brown chalk to the edges of the spring breeze. I cut strips out of white, spring breeze and pastel blue and added brown chalk to the edges of each. Then backed each one in chestnut brown. I also added brown chalk to the edges of the image and sentiment and backed it in chestnut brown. I added brown chalk to the blue chipboard star (it's hard to see in this photo) and added it to the upper corner of the card.

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:
