613 Avenue Create October - Anything Goes Option Masculine

It's October...Fall is officially here. At 613 Avenue Create we're asking for masculine cards as our twist for our Anything Goes challenge.  Our grandson's birthday is this month so this is for him.  It's ok for me to show it now because he doesn't follow my blog:

I fell in love with this image when I saw it.  I think it's perfect for a skinny jean wearing teen, which is one way to describe our grandson.  I purchased this image over a year ago, but too late for his birthday so I saved it until now.

After cutting out the image, I dusted the panel with chalk. Then I matted it onto black card stock.  I embossed my DP and sanded it to pop the impression - love that look.  I cut the DP and matted it onto a back panel atop my white card base.  The sentiment was cut out of a pattern of various sentiments. I matted it onto black card stock also and glued it down after also dusting it with chalk.

(Edited to say that I was out of town the past 5 days.  My scheduled post did not occur Sunday due, I'm sure, to some type of error on my part.)

  2. What a cool card for your grandson Sheila! I love that image and it is perfect for a guy, the embossing and sanding looks great and gives such amazing texture to your card. I think your grandson will treasure this birthday card! Hugs, Brenda

  3. What a great image for a teenager! I'm sure he loved it, Sheila! I think your distressed background panel and sediment go perfectly with the image!! Thank you so much for playing again in my NBUS Challenge #12! Hugs, Darnell

    1. I love your challenge , Darnell. I'm always happy when I feel obligated to use stuff I've bought - LOL!! Thanks for everything.

  4. OMGosh Sheila! What a great design!! I love the image you chose - did you enlarge and crop this image to what it is? Well done if you saw that possibility! love also the embossed and sanded background - distress and very creative choice for the image!

    1. Thanks, Ginny. I did change the image size, but that's all. I didn't crop it - that's how it's designed. I really appreciate your sweet comments.
