Cupcake Craft Challenge

It was my turn this week to choose a theme for the CCC so I decided to choose a card for a man or a boy, as they are usually so difficult to make for. It was my son's 15th birthday last Friday so as I had to make a card for him I combined the two. Now it's not my usual type of card but my son is a drummer in a band called 'zenith 7' (hence the Z on the drumkit) and he is into rock music so I thought dark and grungy was the way to go - thankfully he loved it! I stamped the drumkit and 'you rock' sentiment from a clear stamp set by stampendous called 'rock out' and the skull & cross bones and star stamps are from a clear set by kars called 'rocky star'. The dp is DCWV and the plain cs is from the papermill shop. The images were coloured with promarkers and the ribbon and charm are from my stash. The happy birthday sentiment is stamping bella and I used a studio g alphabet set to stamp my son's name. The number stickers are also DCWV.

Now you may have noticed it's my blogoversary today - I can't believe that one year has gone by since I started this blog - and boy has my crafting come a long way (I hope lol). I have lots of lovely goodies to offer very soon but I think I will wait until the Passion for Promarkers candy and DT call are over so that my candy can be placed at the top of my blog for all to see. I hope you can wait a little longer for some lovelyness!! Thanks for stopping by.

Your card really rocks Denise! You did a wonderful job on picking the colors and the image is just georgous.
Thanks for giving us a great challenge theme - even if I wasn´t too happy about it when I first read what you want us to do.LOL Once I knew what I want to use it was so much fun and with 3 girls there aren´t many oportunities to make a boyish card.

What a challenge Denise. I could hear the whole of the crafting world groan when it went up yesterday - lol!

Your card is perfect for your son and I'm not surprised he loved it. Thankfully I have one son but 4 daughters so I get to be girly a lot more than I have to be "manly"!!
