One for the boys

 I made this card, to prove to myself that i can make a card with out using lots of backing papers, and no flowers.Male theme cards can be a mind field unless you really know the young man  well. Not all boys love football, and if they do what team, red or blue.I also wanted to bring in some thing from my silhouette cameo. which i do not us enough. It still scares me a bit. Perhaps a class or an afternoon watching you tube clips may bring me up to speed.
