Cool Dude...is that a cool thing to say still?

Hi all and w-hay another fab sunshiny morning here in sunny south yorkshire, best stop there in case mother nature notices and changes her mind.
My card this morning to share is a commisioned card for a 15 year old grandson, my son who is 17 says he wouldn't mind recieving it but he doesn't know about a 15 year old, apparently they are a different generation, totally lost me there.

Anyway I used a Kenny k freebie and thought as the grandson in question had recently been helping his granddad put music on his Ipod I thought this image would be  a safe bet.

I colouired with my Promarkers and a touch of sakura glaze on the ipod thingy and his pearly white teeth.

The scraps of card including the one I dry embossed are all recyled bits of christmas bought cards, well waste not is all good for the planet.
I finished with a couple of brads a peel off or three and a bit of ribbon.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Cute card Thursday-music and dance
Digi doodles shops best-anything goes
Paperplay-embossing
Sarah Hurley-embossing
Truely scrumptious-tag it
Cards for men-layout and they have a DT call too
Pollycraft -teens
Kenny K-lace, ribbons and bows
RRR-for the boys
Little Miss Muffet-pearls brads and gems and another DT call

Well, on the younger range....Josh is 10 and he says Cool Dude is not Cool anymore!

Who knows what the 15 yr old will think....

Hi Julye,
I'm glad you found our blog.
We have a very specialist type of challenge where the cards must be clean and simple (our definition is at the top of our blog) and cards can only be combined with a total of 5 challenges.
However, your card is super and great for a teenage chap, but doesn't quite fit with our challenge guidelines.
I think the 15 year old will love it!
