He's just a skater boy!

Good Morning Everyone, 

How are we all doing?

The card I have for you today is a card I made for my husbands cousin he turned 17 the other week.. honestly were does the time go, I remember him a shy little boy, who wouldn't say boo to a goose, and now he is so out going, and is taller then me .. apparently tho if you ask my dad that isn't hard to do.. I am the shortest in our family. 

Anyway onto today's card. 

I started with an 8x8 card blank in Navy blue, that I created using two pieces of A4 card cut and folded to create the blank, I matted and layered it in blue and white mats, added the brown top layer, a blue white and blue mat for the middle a torn piece of paper for the edge, a matted printed and coloured with pro marker digi. I cut the numbers 17 out from my cricut and cut these four times glued them together to give the height and de-embossed them -- actually I was trying to emboss them but put it in the folder the wrong way,  I quiet like the look you can get when you do a mistake. I cut some splats out apparently they are called stars in my cricut book, but look more like splats to me, I used my distress crackle paint and crackled them. 

I added four bits of card candi to the corners and a border across the top and the bottom of the center section.

The challenges I am entering this into are
