Extreme Birthday



I made a second card for my son Ben. His birthday is tomorrow and my mom requested a handmade card to give him. This is what I came up with for my big boy that will turn 8 tomorrow...so hard to believe that he's getting so big!



I combined two challenges for my card tonight...the Color Throwdown #86 using Yoyo Yellow with optional Basic Black, Garden Green & Soft Suede and Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #67.



The Extreme Elements stamp set is such a fun one for kid cards...for both boys and girls! I love pairing it up with the Skateboarder for my little guys:) I was looking through my border punches thinking that they were too frilly/girly...then it dawned on me that I had the Spiral punch!





Now I'm off to bake cupcakes:) Have a great night, folks!



Stamps: Skateboarder, Extreme Elements, On Your Birthday
Paper: Soft Suede, Basic Black, Garden Green, Yoyo Yellow, Whisper White CS, Night & Day and Flock Together DSP
Ink: Basic Black, Soft Suede, Yoyo Yellow, Garden Green
Other: Black Striped Grosgrain, Basic Jumbo Grommets, Star & Spiral Punch, Big Shot, Texture Plates Kit #4, Stars Die
