Card 2 for my 'male stash':  I chose a Paper Shelter digi called Physical and Spiritual Strength, and coloured it with ProMarkers.  My papers are from the DCWV All About Boys stack.  The karate elements are all Jolee's.  I've added a few odd buttons.  The pup is a Dress It Up button.  Lastly, I've added a yellow ribbon and a black ribbon, and tied the black one to resemble a black belt.  

This was a super quick card to make: colouring a stamp, one sticker pack, one paper pack and a few odd buttons and ribbons.  I don't think I've ever made a card so fast!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge #60: Anything Goes
