when your 9 year old son says "Cool card!"

Skateboarder-card Well, I kind of hoped he'd like this one…(I was actually thinking of using it as his bday card! LOL).

This card uses Extreme Elements and Extreme Skateboarder.  I sponged Pumpkin Pie and Ruby Red inks onto Very Vanilla cardstock, then stamped the Elements in the same inks.  I stamped the skateboarder in Basic Black on top.  If I were to redo this card, I may consider doing the skateboarder in craft ink so that I could emboss him.

This card was inspired by a "swap" I received a few years ago… unfortunately I can't find the original right now, so can't give credit.  When demonstrators get together, we tend to swap cardfronts to share ideas and inspiration.  I've said it before – you don't need to be creative to be a cardmaker (or a demonstrator, for that fact!!) – you just have to be able to copy and tweak!!  (Need more proof?  Come to my Info Night! LOL)
