Nice to get back into my craft room after the break leading up to Christmas. Lots of new crafty presents to play with as well!

Today's card is for a work colleague to give to her son for his 17th Birthday. I find male cards difficult at the best of times but teenage male is a big stumbling block!

I used a large (8x8) Kraft card base and a 'masculine' colour combination of red, white and black with a splash of silver. The number patterned paper has been sitting unloved in a box for at least 2 years - a craft fair bargain.

I've entered this into the challenges at:

The Male Room - celebration
Charisma Cardz - anything goes
Seize The Birthday - anything goes
Creative Card Crew - anything goes

Thanks for visiting
