Teenage Boy Birthday Cards Are Not Easy!

My nephew's 14th birthday was this past week.  And if you know teenage boys, cards for them are not easy to come up with!  But I have a new stamp set in my arsenal ... Bring On The Cake!  It's in the Occasions Mini Catalog.  Both of these images are from that set.  I spritzed the background with my Log Cabin Smooch Spritz (which I like to call Lincoln Log Spritz) and then I was trying to figure out how to dress it up a little when I thought of using the ribbon punch on Not Quite Navy and layering it with the Old Olive.  The other color used is Cajun Craze.  Yes, it's also difficult to come up with a color combo for a teenage boy, but I think I succeeded here.  In fact, I'm thinking that I'll have to use this combo again.  I like the way the Cajun Craze pops the NQN and Olive.

Thanks for stopping by the Stamping Station once again.  I'm going to try to post for the next couple of days, but there might be some silence.  The hard drive on my new laptop is dying and HP is sending me a new one to install.  Unfortunately that means having to reload all of my programs.  Grrrr.....  At least it was still under warranty!
