HB2U

Needing to make a card for a teenage boy, I found my inspiration at the current challenges at Less is More...


 Dark background with a splash of colour(s)


and also at CASology...





So using a black base card, some scraps of brightly coloured card and some Die-namics letter and number dies I came up with this...

 

I love how the colours really stand out against the black but my fave bit is the white star - in my head it seems to make it even more masculine and balances the design nicely.

Back to the Christmas cards now!
