Have a Skatin' Good Birthday!

Quick post for me as I'm about to head to bed after this long holiday weekend.  We had a wonderful weekend-my oldest played some baseball and came in 2nd place at their tournament, today we spent the day out on the lake with friends.  Beautiful weekend.  This week is sure to go by fast for me.

Our challenge over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations this week was a kids card.  Going with my theme of trying to make more boy cards, I went with another boy's birthday card.  Our wonderful sponsor, The Wild Flower Patch has given us a few images to work with and I chose to use Skater Sage.  My son & his friends really love to skateboard so thought this would be a great one to add to my stash.

The paper I used is some old CTMH papers and I added a felt decorative label from Creative Cuts and More and positioned my sentiment over it.  I finished off the card with 3 mini brads.

Hope you will join us over at Going Grey with Scrap-creations by creating something with a kids theme and linking up here.
