CA Boy Birthday

This week's Club Anya Monday Mania challenge was to use the colors kraft, sand, khaki and olive green. So I thought this challenge would be perfect to beef up my "boy" birthday card stash. So including this card, I now have...one boy birthday card.

I used my TGF Skateboard Ian because I wanted to try a fatigue/camoflague type shirt with copics. I took out the star on his shirt b/c it didnt quite reflect the punker/grungy boy look I was going for. Gosh, I'm like getting flashbacks from high school now...bleached hair...ratty beanies...skateboards...duuude.

I had these awesome little metal flower shaped brads but when I asked the boy if it'd be appropriate for a boy card his response was - "not unless you try and hide them in a manly type tree, or he's skateboarding over them." So no flower brads.

I also went over the edge of his board with a little diamond glaze. Not exactly true to high school skateboards I knew b/c they were all covered with duct tape.

The Dets:
Stamps: TGF Skateboard Ian, PTI Siggie Greetings
Paper: PTI kraft & dark chocolate, SU!
Ink: Mement black, copics, Versacolor pinecone
Accessories: Diamond glaze, eyelets, crop-a-dile, spellbinders rectangles, swiss dots embossing folder


  1. Duuuuuude...that is cute. Nice coloring. Please try to actualize K's advice next time and have Ian skate-boarding over the metal flowers. That'd be AAAAAAAWWWWEEESSSOOOOOOMMMMEEEE...

  2. Dude... what does mine say... SWEET!
