Jesse's card

This will be my last post tonight... gettin' sleepy...
Not only was it my mom's bday and my friend Michele's bday, it was also my other friend's bday and his name is Jesse. For his card I wanted to go with natural boy colors. I absolutely love this card. I was actually thinking of keeping it but he saw it and thought it was cute. I laughed and told him well u weren't supposed to see it since it was your card.. lol.. He loved it though which made me happy.

I didn't go for the normal hair color, but I absolutely love the orange do. I based it off of one of our favorite anime characters Ichigo Kurosaki from BLEACH:

I used a lot of the Spotlight stamps from TGF and my newest cutie pie WS Eric, also from TGF. Went simple boy style for his outfit and used the same neutral/natural colors for the surrounding images. The swiss dot embossing to the paper really added great dimension to the card and I really like how the greens and the browns worked on the kraft and green papers. The simple sentiment was all I needed to finish off this fun boy card. Mahalo for looking!
