A Couple of Cards + Scrapmatts Jan Challenge

Only a couple of cards to share at the moment as I am catching up on some DT creations which I can't share just yet.

16th Birthday Card

A birthday card created for one of Brittany's girlfriends for her 16th birthday using a funky grungy girl stamp from Green Pepper Press and some MME Lost & Found 6x6 paper pad and bit of BG Boxer from my old stash.

Brittany has quite of few birthday's to attend of late. One for twins who turn 17 and one for triplets who will be turning 18, so I will have a few cards to share this coming month.

Scrapmatts January Challenge

This month at Scrapmatts our challenge is by the talented Ilene Tell is to create a card that uses black Scrapmatts chipboard. Of course this can be chipboard that came in black already, or one that you color black using any method you like. See....super easy!! And at the end of the month, a winner will be picked and will get $25 gift certificate to Scrapmatts.

Here is my take on the challenge with a quick masculine card using the Penny Farthing chippie in black (CB1012), which I altered with a BG sticker and some red buttons.  The pp's are from Simple Stories Destination range and I also used a Sizzix gears embossing folder for a little texture.
