Have an Awesome Birthday Dude! - Oh those teen years!

Happy Sunday everyone,
It's the last day of February and time for a "Just Because" card.
A few weeks ago I won a challenge at Tellens Place and along with my prize pack of goodies I had my choice of 2 of their digital stamps!
Well I can't let a good image sit still for long so I printed it out and got to work on a card.

Obviously it wouldn't be a Katie Card without a list of challenges too!

Tellens Place had an open week as long as you used one of their images
Gingersnaps want a Birthday Card
ABC Design also had a Birthday theme
Quixotic wanted One For The Boys
Pixie Dust want you to Think Birthday
Tuesday Morning Sketches had a color combo of Light Orange, Dark Brown & Ivory
Design Dollies want Orange, Brown and a Neutral
Midnight Madness had your choice of Simple or Fancy sketch
Clearly I Stamp said It's Hip To Be Square and wanted a square card (and they are sponsored by Clear Dollar Stamps who are giving away a great prize!)



Card Recipe

Image - Earphones Edward
Paper - DCWV (some of it really old! LOL)
Ribbon - Little Davis
Brads - The Paper Studio for Hobby Lobby
Die Cuts - Spellbinders
Medium - Copic Markers
Border punch - Bubbles by EK Success



Inside is more dp and a message mat.



I checked with my "soon to be a teen" son if this was too girly and he said "no, if boys can wear pink they can wear peach", oh the wisdom of youth! LOL
I'm so not a boy card maker but have recently been called on to create some more manly cards and you know what? I kinda like the challenge :)
I hope you've liked looking at him too and have a great rest of your Sunday.
Be sure to drop back tomorrow for 3, yes 3 posts, with lots of new creations.
Katie
