Narelle has come up with an awesome sketch for us at Just Add Ink this week. 

I have used the sketch as a basis for my son's birthday card.  Jack turns 20 tomorrow, and, in true "Mother of the Year" style, I will be away for two days, soaking up the fun at a Stampin' Up! event in Melbourne.  Thankfully, I have very understanding sons!
I've kept the card simple, since a "no fuss" approach is necessary for this young man.  I'm loving the Go Wild DSP stack for masculine cards.  The paper dictated my colour scheme, of Tip Top Taupe, Basic Black, and Whisper White.
Listed below are all the Stampin' Up! products used to make this card.  You can go to my online store, to purchase them yourself, if you click on any of the thumbnail images.

Thanks for visiting my blog today.  Please make sure you check out the rest of the Design Team's creations over at Just Add Ink - and, if you can find the time, how about joining in the fun?
