A birthday card for a boy

Since I have a little boy, I know that, eventually, I will have to delve into making cards for little boys as I expect that most of his friends will be boys.

This is a sketch from Cards for Men, a site dedicated to masculine card making. I really liked the sketch, but I found it hard to make a boy card. I wanted to add glitter or something. With boy-type cards, less is better.

Here is my card using the colors Tempting Turquoise, Marina Mist and Certainly Celery. I added a pom-pom trim in Tangerine Tango which I hope wasn't too girly. We'll see what the recipient says. Cross your fingers.

Stamp sets: On a Pedestal, Bring on the Cake, Punch Bunch
