Birthday Card for Male Gamer Using CTMH Snowhaven Paper Pack

Hello bloggers/friends.  How is everyone today?  I haven't felt too good lately; so I had to slow down on creating cards.  I created this card for my stepson's birthday.  This was a big step for me; as I have never created a card with black hair.  I almost gave up in the very beginning; because I thought it was a lost cause.  Surprisingly; it came together and I thought it turned out pretty good after all.  

I needed something for a gamer; so I thought this looked like a video game guy.  Plus, he is gorgeous! LOL!  My stepson looks like this guy; in shape and size; plus he has long black hair.  His hair isn't wild like this; but I thought he might like it anyway.  His eyes are gorgeous; like this guy too.  I normally color girls; and they are usually well dressed.  This was way outside my comfort zone.   I must be getting braver in my old age.  LOL!   I hope you enjoy this card; as much as I did creating it.  I used a CTMH Christmas paper pack on this card.  I am very happy to see that you can use some of the pages for something other than Christmas.  

It is time for another fabulous challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox Challenge 77 For A Male.  Our sponsor for this challenge is Sweet N' Sassy.  I had already created this card for a male; and haven't felt up to creating much lately; so I will use this one.  Be sure to check out the other DT creations; as many of them did use a Sweet N' Sassy image.  They have some fabulous digi stamps.
