For the boys

I don't know about you, but I never seem to have enough boy cards. And as my son and his friends get older, the cute cartoon-y images just don't cut it.I just got this "Extreme Skateboarder" image from Stampin Up and thought it would be perfect to whip up a batch of "big boy" cards :-) I used colors, patterns and embellishments from an SU Simply Scrappin Kit called "Cool Kids".
I'm loving the color gray at the moment. And I just stocked up, so brace yourselves because I'll be using it lots!
I try to go easy on the embellishments when I'm making masculine cards. I usually don't put ribbon on them, but I think it works here. I cut about 12" of polka dot ribbon and applied double stick tape to the back of it. Then I just squished it all together at the bottom of the tag and accented with red brads. All I had on hand were fluorescent pink brads - ewwwww. Why do I have these!? Thank goodness I had my handy-dandy red Copic marker that came to the rescue!
