Birthday Boy!!

Next week is my cousin's 15th birthday, and we're having a party for him on Sunday.  I decided to suck it up and try to make a boy card.  Luckily, Tiddly Inks has this fabulous image named Geekatude, and it's just perfect for a teenage boy.  It's brand new to me...I just bought it a couple of days ago.  I was VERY excited to try it out!

I decided to use a sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday (number 105):



As I said, the image is from Tiddly Inks, and it was colored using Copics and Glaze Pens.  (The #15, laptop and MP3 player face are actually black...they just have a silver shine because of the camera flash.) The papers are from DCWV's Rockstar stack and Making Memories Just Chillin' stack (the boy version).  The ribbon is from Michael's.  The sentiment I printed out with this cool new font I found (it's called SF Comic Strip Shaded), colored with a blue Glaze pen, and then shaded the paper with chalk ink in Chestnut Roan (the same color used to edge all of the papers).

I don't really know my cousin very well (my mom married his uncle after I moved away to college) so I'm really hoping he'll like this.  Cross your fingers!  =)

Thanks for stopping by, and we'll "see" you tomorrow!
