A Teenage Birthday

This is the card I have made for a teenage boy, I love making male cards for adults and children but teenagers are always a challenge and this one was no exception.

The papers are all from the Authentique Genuine Collection, the computer generated sentiment has been cut out using a Spellbinders Labels Eighteen die and the stars using an X-cut die, the smaller stars have had some 3D Crystal Lacquer added and that's about it.

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

Creative Card Crew Challenge 32 - Masculine
Ladybug Crafts Challenge - Anything Goes
Party Time Tuesdays Challenge 113 - Anything Goes
Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
Let's Craft and Create Challenge 66 - One for the Boys
The Paper Shelter Challenge 105 - Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Cupcake Craft Chalenge 235 - Cool Men

I'm a bit late tonight, the big boys are in Basingstoke competing in The Battle of the Bands - I do hope it goes well, so I have been on Tae Kwon Do duty with Laurence.

Thank you for visiting, please leave a comment so that I can come and visit you.
