Skateboarding into several Challenges

Hi Everyone,

I have not made a card in a few days now and I really wanted to make one tonight, but I wasn't sure what to do....
....until I saw this weeks CAS(E) this Sketch and then it clicked!


Of course I had to squeeze in a color challenge and this week's Color Throwdown supplied just the right colors for what I had in mind. And what's even better I also could incorporate the theme for the Shopping our Stash challenge - something for the big boy! Now what a fortunate coincidence!


A three in one! The stamp is ancient - bought a long time ago on one of those stamp fares and so far NBUS. The sentiment is by Happy Little Stampers, the set is called Mix Mash. I love it - great fonts and happy birthday in all sorts of different sizes. I stamped the skateboarder and masked him and then sponged the strip. Really quick. - Added an enamel dot, although I was wondering if it would trip that skateboarder and catapult him off his board...but probably not - he seems to be quite skilled :)

Linking up with:
Shopping our Stash - something for the big boy
Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with HLS stamps

Cornelia!!!!!
You rocked the sketch! Beyond awesome my friend!

Flo said...

Grün und blau sind deine Farben - oder sehe ich das falsch??? Diese Kombination mag ich ebenfalls sehr gerne, obwohl ich sie nicht so oft nutze.
Deine Skateboardkreation ist wunderbar. Genau passend für ein männliches Wesen - jüngeren Datums???
Liebe Grüße
