Double Trouble - my boys

Good Morning, I hope you are all having a great start to the week, as some of you already know I have 6yr old twin Grandson's Aaron & Ross, well , when I saw this image I just had to have it. Isn't it the most adorable twin image you've ever seen. It's one of CJ's over at Cowgirl stampin' up and I've used it to enter a few challenges, I wanted to add some flowers . Mmmm.... not appropriate for a couple of wee boys.

But I got round it by making the flowers out of string and adding some star buttons. I platted some string to make the other embellishment. I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

The recipe for the card is at the bottom of the page. The challenges I'm entering are:

1. Cowgirl's Sunday Challenge: I followed the fab sketch and the colour combo of added turquoise, red or pink. (I've gone for turquoise green)

2. Paper Cutz Challenge: Are looking for a Cowboy/Western theme this week

3. Totally Papercrafts Challenge:
have a recipe of 1 image, 2 papers, 1 ribbon and three embellishments

4. Cards For Men Challenge: Also have a recipe this week of 1 image, 2papers, 3 embellishments.

That's all for me for this morning - I'm sure I'll see you all later on though.
