Knight Charlie

In an effort to make more boy cards, I used Knight Charlie from Whiff of Joy and backdropped him with a mighty fortress, the Sandstone Citadel from Make it Crafty. However, by adding the stitching and ribbon I think it was disqualified in the true-boy card division. None the less, it was another fun card to make!

This castle is so much fun to color and I can see it done in the colors of Disney's castle or the one from Beauty & The Beast movie - both great for a princess! Again I used the shimmering paper to give it an added sparkle!

The challenge themes entered were an Anything Goes and Feeling Blue (use the color blue).

Did you know? A castle is a type of fortified structure built in Europe and the Middle East during the Middle Ages. Scholars debate the scope of the word castle, but usually consider it to be the private fortified residence of a lord or noble. This is distinct from a fortress, which was not a home, and from a fortified town, which was a public defense, though there are many similarities between these types of construction. The term has been popularly applied to structures as diverse as hill forts and country houses.
