Make Today EPIC!

Hello Everyone!!  Today the JustRite team have 2 new sets for you!!  Introducing Choose Joy and A2 Garden View Background!

If you missed it - my card yesterday featured the A2 Garden View Background, you can scroll down to see it!  :)

Did you see how cut the Choose Joy set is???  So sweet......however, I was faced with that dreaded card......not even the Man Card.......but......the TEEN BOY CARD!!!!  GROAN!!!  Seriously teen boys are soooooooo hard to make for, can't be cute, can't be too grown up, can't be daggy --- so I took a deep breath and began.....

I used a base of green bazzill and layered with Baja Breeze.  Next I took a piece of Very Vanilla and stamped the Upcycled Woodgrain Background in Desert Sand.  Down the side I've attached another piece of Baja Breeze and a piece of Kaisercraft Attitude DP.  I've then taken another piece of Attitude paper and cut it into a square and placed it as shown.  I've die cut a 13 out of Baja Breeze and placed it on a circle of Vanilla and attached as shown.  I've then used the 'Make Today Epic' sentiment from Choose Joy (thought this would be perfect for a teen boy!) and stamped it in the bottom corner in Rich Cocoa.  I looked at it and thought it was probably a bit to 'clean', so I've airbrushed some E84 Copic around the edges to grunge it up a bit.

So there you go, I survived the dreaded Teen Boy Card and apparently it passed as suitable!!  LOL!

Oh, Kathy! I rally chuckled as I read your comments about not only making a guy card, but a TEEN card! Oh, the dreaded card for teen-aged boys! Ugh! I so agree, but you really made a fabulous one! We have an older teen boy who is more and more man-like, so it's a real struggle! Thanks for sharing this great card and sharing your own struggle...glad to know I am not alone! LOL! Hugs!
