Birthday card #2

Hello.  I made another card for the TGF Farm Fresh Challenge Monday Fun-Day #12 which was to use kraft cardstock, buttons and twine.  And I used the Deconstructed Sketch #31, although I turned it sideways and moved the center rectangle over.
Anyhow, here is the birthday card using Later Skater Ian.  Maybe he's still too young for a 41 year old's birthday card, but oh well.  (Maybe I should have added some gray to his hair).  Used some Tim Holtz paper (I always seem to use this paper pad for boy cards but everything matches so well); Papertrey ink kraft, rustic cream, and enchanted evening cardstock, buttons and sentiment.  The 41 is cut from some sizzix dies.  Tried to make his skin tone a little darker with E13 for some shadows at his hairline, but still can't quite get the hang of blending without going too crazy and coloring out of the lines either.

Well, hopefully I can make 2 more Christmas cards before Christmas.  Eva gave me some cute stamps that I have colored, but haven't stuck them onto cards yet.  In case I don't have time to post anything else before Christmas, have a Merry Christmas!

Great masculine card, Cheryl! Love the colors & papers, the 41 and your Copic coloring is rocking - his skin and hair looks great (no, don't add the gray - hehe)!
