A Card For Matt

Hi lovely people.... Hope you are all well today...!!

Today I'd like to share a card I was asked to make by my friend Polly. It was for her eldest son Matt, who after seeing a card I made earlier in the year for his brother had made it quite clear to his Mum that he expected an "Andrea made" card too lol. So when I saw this image by Mo Manning called "Paul Texting" I knew it was perfect as it shares an uncanny resemblance to Matt....

I made the card out of Kraft Card and mated my new papers onto Chocolate Card and the image, I coloured with Promarkers and edged all with Peeled Paint Distress Ink,  .... Most importantly Paula (affectionately known as Polly) was really happy with it and so was Matt....
