SFYTT - January 2011

My nephew is turning 15 on Saturday, and he's quite an athlete. Right now he's really into wrestling and spends most of his free time training for and competing in matches/tournaments. Here's the birthday card I created especially for him. Hopefully he'll think it's pretty cool.

This card was pretty simple to pull together. No stamping (I know...gasp!!), just cardstock, patterned paper, stickers and some brads. I used Jen Del Muro's sketch from the January 2011 "Sketch For You To Try" challenge as a starting point. Click HERE for all of the challenge details!

That's it for today! Short post, I know, but we just got back from a week in Long Beach, and I'm still trying to get caught up!

Thanks for stopping by! Hope you're having a FABULOUS week!

Cardstock: Stampers' Select White (Papertrey Ink), Charcoal Grey Cover (The Paper Company)
Patterned Paper: Wrestling-Words (Stamping Station), Basics: Sphere (Basic Grey)
Stickers: Kay-Wrestling (Me & My Big Ideas)
Brads: (source unknown)
Edge Distresser Tool: (Heidi Swapp)
Double-Sided Tape: (X-Press It)

Finished Card Size: 5" X 5"

Lisa what an amazing card! So many of my blogworld friends have been making fantastic masculine creations lately, and I'm thinking that's going to be my next major challenge! =)

Oooh! What a great masculine card. I always struggle with making cards for boys. Apparently you don't have that same problem! This card turned out awesome, Lisa!
