What? A boy card!

Yep, you read right! I actually got around to making a boy's card.
I really have to get a few of these made so I'm not rushing at the last minute.

This is for a family friend who is turning 13 this week.
"Happy Birthday Blake!"
These are also colours that I don't normally use. I'm not sure why but I don't do the brights so well. Orange, yellow and red. But, I see stripes on a boy's shirt or jacket and they just have to have red or orange on them! Go figure! I'm going to try this guy in all browns next time, just to mix it up. (and get rid of that orange ;p )
I followed the sketch over at The Pink Elephant this week. I've been doing the 6 x 6 cards lately and I struggled to cut it back to the 'normal' A2 card. I thought it would be easier to decorate as I wasn't using flowers to fill up the card. Isn't it funny what you get used to?!
Hope you're all having a fabulous week.
Keep creating, Kylie ox

Kylie, how ever sooooo cute! The blue and orange always makes me think "boy". I loooove those colors together along with that cute Greeting Farm stamp.
Hugs, Dena
