Challenge Winning cards

Another card for a 12 year old - this time with a skateboard theme... or to get down with the kids #sk8!!

I really do need to get more masculine stash! I struggled again to find a suitable image but as always Google is your friend. I printed 3 copies of this pre-coloured image and decoupaged bits to add some depth.

The backing paper is from a really old Trimcraft pack and I created the greeting on the computer. The silver letters and numbers are from a pack from The Range. I've also used a Memory Box die to create the 'tread' effect - the actual die is rectangle shaped but I rough cut it in two for a more 'urban/grafitti' look.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Craftoholics R Us - die cuts
Crafty Creations #347 - anything goes
Sisterhood of Crafters - boys to men (2nd entry)
Crafting By Designs - August anything goes
Paper Creator - anything goes
