Urban Charlie

Wow...I'm so sorry I've been absence for quite a while.... Lots of reasons really, but mainly my mojo has been on a major holiday and like many people my body has been fighting a nasty virus , but my nemesis M.E. decided to join in too, so bed rest (yet again) it has been... Anyway, I hope you are well, and slowly recovering from the chaos of December and getting used to writing 2015, which I constantly forget, it'll take me to March to

So, enough of my drivel, let's get back on track and I'd like to share with you my first card post of the year....

I made this for my son Charlie's 20th Birthday..... I personally find young male cards quite tricky and as I have had my eye on this Urban Digi Set and the Urban Gang Set from "Make It Crafty" for a while, when they had there Christmas sale, it was a done deal....

I made the images the main focus, and this is the final result....

It was great fun to colour and being my own worst critic, I was actually quite pleased with it..
