Happy Birthday

I made today's card for my nephew's b-day which I got to him late...bummer.  I guess better late than never though.  Let me tell you teen guys are the hardest to make cards for!  I definitely went to a couple of challenges to help out with this one!  The other day I saw the Color Me Beautiful challenge (love the colors!) and the Paper Craft Crew challenge (there had to be a way to make it masculine and still follow the sketch) and tried to figure out what I could come up with for him using these two challenges.  I don't think it turned out too bad.  Just wish the reflection wasn't so dark...but once it's dark there's no going back and I wasn't starting over! lol  Normally I don't have such a dark band in between the mountains and reflection either, but I wanted to follow the sketch as closely as I could while still making it masculine.  That meant no ribbon or bows!


Thanks for looking and have a great day!
