Caardvarks is Da Bomb!


The Caardvarks challenge this week is a sketch challenge. I had all of these coordinating papers, trims and die cuts in the Making Memories "Just Chillin" line so I thought I would use a little of each to create a hip and happening teen card. I don't have a teen yet - next year :0), but I thought it would be fun to try to create something that age bracket might like! I was drawn to the Just Chillin' line because . . . 1. I have 3 boys, 2. It had some fun camouflage prints and trim, 3. It had some cool Fleur de Lis die cuts. Camo and Fleur de Lis fit well with the whole Scouting theme.

Many of the die cuts have a shiny colored foil to them (guys version of glitter :0) ) On this card the star, the outline of the sentiment, and the edge of the guitar all have the foil for lots of shine. Not too sure I achieved the "hip and happenin'" factor I was looking for, but it was fun playing with all of the coordinating items.

Head on over to Caardvarks and check out all of the other awesome entries . . . and have a hip and happenin' day. I'm off to chaperone a bunch of - way too cool Cub Scouts at their week long summer daycamp!!

  1. Absolutely fab card Randee! I love the large scalloped edge and the winged star. I never thought of foil being the male version of glitter!
