Sketch Saturday #470

My teenage son looks forward to summer camp every year. A week away from home with his friends, swimming and playing paint ball.  And no little sister or parents.

Even though he's only gone for a week, I always make a special card and mail it to him. It's hard to make cards for teenage boys. A friend recently gave me this fun ninja set from MFT, and I thought it was perfect. Especially since my son takes karate classes.

I used a newest sketch from Sketch Saturday and the Tall Triangle die cuts from Reverse Confetti for the background stripes.

    1. Thanks, Sybrina! It's so fun to have my card chosen as one of their faves. My son did like his card. I should probably start planning his card for next summer since it gets harder and harder every year. Have a wonderful day!
