Stampin 411 #172 & Happy Birthday

I am so glad Stamping 411 had a great simple sketch this week that I would be able to create a Birthday card for my Son who will turn 13 tomorrow. He is very excited that his birthday is on 10-10-10 this year and to boot it is a big one for him. 13! We will be taking 3 of his freinds with us to Lake George NY to celebrate at Six Flags!

This sketch is great for a masculine card because it does not have a lot of elements!
I choose to stay monochromatic and used one of Christians favorite colors night of navy.
I love how the Decorative Label match up with the points on the Lattice Die!
This card is so simple for a boy...not alot of frills since I used the 1/8" tafetta Ribbon.
