Texting Boy

I was commissioned to make a young teens birthday card, which for a boy I find quite hard, but I found the perfect solution with this great Mo Manning image.  Coloured with promarkers, random papers, and simply embellished with buttons and twine.  The lady who's nephew this was for was thrilled, and thought it had a great resemblance to him !!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

DP2 Challenge - Photo Inspiration
Cards For men - The Great Outdoors
CES Challenge - No Girls Allowed
Karens Doodles - Make It For A Male
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
