Sketch Saturday

This week for my "Sketch Saturday" post,
is a card that I decided to make for my son's 14th Birthday.

I've never tried a card this way before - It's definitely different!
He is very much into the camoflauge things,
and shooting his 22 riffle.
Not to mention all he ever plays are the military games on Xbox.
Soooo, it's Camoflauge for him.
Now here is the funny part!
When coloring my image,
I asked him if Edwin should wear a camo shirt as well...
You know what he said?
"Noooo, he needs a shirt like this one"
(as He rubbed the stomach area of his own shirt) LOL
And he has NO IDEA that this card was being made for him!

In this picture, the camera does funny things to colors.
In reality, the green glittery paper around the
image matches with the other greens.
I think it must be because it's the glittered
paper it looks so different.
But I PROMISE it DOES match in REAL Life! LOL
