James on his laptop

It was my friend's son's 15th birthday last week (and boy has that time flown by!), but I haven't the chance to go over to her's until tomorrow, so I thought I would make Scott a new card for his birthday with one of my new stamps. This card is for Sketch and Stash's Challenge #133 to use the sketch below. My new stash is my James stamp and my old stash is the Soft Sky patterned paper which I have had for about 4 years or whenever it was that Soft Sky was an in-color for Stampin' Up.

This card is also for Crafty Little Fairies One For The Boys Challenge and for Colour Me's Challenge #8 to use the lovely cool colour combo below.


And here's my James. Not too fussy and just right for a 15 year old I think!

Papers: Pistachio Pudding, Baked Brown Sugar, Soft Sky Prints DSP (Retired), In Colors 2013-15 DSP Stack all from Stampin' Up, Copic X-Press It Blending Card

Accessories: Soft Sky Ribbon (Retired), Spiral Edge Punch (Retired) both from Stampin' Up, Circle Nestabilities from Spellbinders, Buttons from stash
