Totally Papercrafts Challenge #22

Good morning everyone. what glorious weather we are having here in East Yorkshire.  Hope it stays this way when we go camping again in August!!!

The weekend is nearly here which means its time for another challenge with my buddies over at Totally Papercrafts.  This week its the lovely Anne setting the theme and she REALLY has come up with a challenge.....


Here's what I came up  with...

As it was for a fella, out went the flowers I tend to use on easels, so I opted for a strong colour scheme.  The image was a download - unfortunately Pete's been tampering BIG style with my 'puter and I now can't find the original file I stored the details in so unfortunately can't tell you who its from.  If anyone recognises it please let me know so I can edit the post (and pop back for more digi shopping lol).  I do know that it's called "Tokyo Boy" and could have been a freebie but not sure!!  Sorry - not much use am I this morning lol!!
