Unfortunately I have to work on my son's first day of high school.  He is probably happy that I won;t have my camera in his face.  So I made him this card.  I know it is very plain..he is not a plain guy.  The background papers are from DCWV Generational Tech pack.  I just got 3 Birds on Parade, i know it is a bit young for a 14 year old.  But I had to try it out.  CTO is having a back to school challenge  CLICK HERE. Cricut Cardz Challenge is having a "School is Cool" challenge.  CLICK HERE

Papers:All papers are DCWV; for the non foil solids I used Adhesive backed papers
Cricut:3 Birds on Parade
Dies:Spellbinders-tag-Blossom Tags and Accents; Dot paper-Classic Scalloped Circles Small; orange-Lacy Circles
Stamp:MCT teeny Tags "Follow Your Dreams", ink Vivid
Adhesives:Dimensionals-Forever in Time
