21st Birthday

Over in Limette - land this week we've been asked for a one layer card and to use a frame - great thought I as I'd just downloaded a freebie digi frame, ideal to use. Whilst looking for an image to fill the frame I came across this little skate boy and remembered I still needed another birthday card for no 1 son whose 21st it'll be on Wednesday so thought I'd better make it first. This is how it turned out:

The image is a freebie from Sliekjes Stamps and has been coloured with promarkers. The sentiment has been done in Publisher using wordart and I've left it uncoloured to try to keep the card clean and simple (hope this counts as a frame!).

Challenges entered:
Less is More - olc in the frame
Paper Play Challenges - Fathers day/Man's Card
CCEE - sports theme
Saturday Challenge - male card
Little Claires - cards for men
