A CAS birthday card for a teenager

 My son needed a birthday card for one of his friends. He specifically said it MUST be simple, no flowers or anything even remotly feminine!

Well, luckily there are web challenges to help a mom meet the criteria ...LOL

Since I was working on a card (HERE) for the current challenge at The Color Throwdown, I continued with the same colors, this time with more bold hues.

CAS Colours & Sketches have a very CAS sketch - it's all about the sentiment:

The Male Room's challenge is 'for a teenager':

I die cut the 'Happy' from yellow and grey cardstocks, and adhered them with a slight shaddow. I then die cut the birthday, actually two dies - background in blueish pp, and the word in green cs.

No embellishments, right?! I punched small stars from the paper I used before, and my card is done.

And my son? He said: "It's okay"...., and off he went to the birthday party...

Thank you for visiting my blog. Your comments are much appreciated.

No flowers, not girlie, simple - I would say you hit the nail on the head! I adore your die cut sentiment particularly the "Happy". Very cute, love the colors. Thanks for joining us at CC&S for this Challenge, hope to see you in our galleries again soon.
