Later Sk8r - Another Sneak Peek with a Birthday Card!

It's been a few days since I've posted because I actually haven't been in my craft room.  I told myself that I HAD to get all my tax stuff together before I could return and play.   It was a daunting task that took me two days but by Saturday afternoon I was back in my favorite room!

After finishing up some upcoming Stamp of the Month projects (to be revealed on Feb 1) I pulled out another new paper pack to play with.   This time it's Later Sk8r (X7167B).   Although I don't have any boys to be scrapping I do LOVE this paper and I can absolutely make it work for my needs because I love the patterns and colors used.   I went back to the Seize the Birthday challenge for this card I made because this week they are making BOY birthday cards.   The sketch is same as last week - you can see the GIRL birthday card I made with Chantilly paper HERE.

I used Slate cardstock as my background but I added some texture to it by using the background stamp that is included in the Later Sk8r Workshop On The Go (G1057) kit.  I stamped it in Outdoor Denim ink. To give my card a 'rugged boy' feel, I scissor distressed the edges of the papers and cardstock. My frame is also stamped in Outdoor Denim ink with our new Perfect Fit - Frames 2 (D1536) stamp set.  It coordinates perfectly with the Artiste Cartridge.  Next, I used another new stamp set - Perfect Fit Birthday (B1417) and Slate Ink to layer on top of the frame.   I added Pewter Brads and a Pewter Photo clip from the Mini Medley Accents - Pewter collection (Z1487) to finish off the card.

Here is the sketch I used for my card:
