Bloggers Challenge 97

Oops, I am late with my Friday Blogger's Challenge. I do have a good excuse. My daughter's birthday was Friday as well as her ice skating Spring Show. Friday, I hit the ground running and did not stop until midnight. We had four 12-year-old girls for the night. Woohoo!

So, for the Blogger's Challenge #97, the challenge was to use this sketch...


and here is my card...

I turned the sketch on its side to work with the stamp I chose to use.

Stamps: Bronc Buster
Ink: Memento Brown, Copics, Chocolate Chip, Brocade Blue
Paper: Chocolate Chip, Pacific Point, DCWV Stack #6
Embellishments: Star Punch, Fiskars Texture Plate, Sponge, Distress Tool

I wanted to make a card that was easy to mail as this card is for my nephew, and his birthday is tomorrow. I really need to get it in the mail ASAP. Therefore, I did not use lots of thick or heavy embellishments. I think this is pretty good for a 14-year-old boy, don't you? Nice and masculine, not too youthful.

Have a great rest of your weekend!

It's hard to please a 14 year old boy, but girl I think you nailed it with this one. Great work from an over-busy mom/stamper.
