I am making an assortment of cards for 10-12 year old boys, on the request of a friend. I find this a really tough age group, especially as I have no idea of the interests of the boys. Maybe this High Hopes stamp works. I may add a little "grandson" tag. I think the DP is from a DCWV Fall stack - this summer I am using items from a limited supply - all separated from the original source. The cord is a shiny variegated brown from Paper Pizzazz, and the bg is dark green.
I colored with Prismas, and used shiny gel pens for the flames, candles, and trim. The shiny frosting is Enamel Accents by Ranger - for this challenge: http://highhopesstamps.blogspot.com/http://highhopesstamps.blogspot.com/
