A Card for a Teenager..

I love looking on the internet for freebie images, and a while a go I saw this one on one of the blogs I regularly visit, and thought that it would be fab for teenage boys cards.

My friends son is 15 next week, so I decided to use the image on a card for him. One of my cyber friend's Debbie, had used this image on a card she made a few weeks back, and I loved her card, and how it had been put together, that I asked her if it would be OK for me to use the same papers/image on a card that I needed to make. She very kindly said that I could, so this is what I have come up with for Josh.

I've coloured the image with promarkers and cut and matted it with some 'nesties'. I have tried to co-ordinate the coloured mat with one of the colours of the backing paper, and it seems to have worked really well. The sentiment and candy are from my stash.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Paper Sundaes Challenge - stripes
Allsorts Challenge - a card for a teenager
Aly's Sunday Challenge - anything goes
Crafty Ann's Challenge - birthday card
Fairytale Challenge - children/image of a child
