Birthday Card for Male Using Conie Fong Skateboarding Benny with CTMH Urban Paper

Hello Friends!  I hope you are doing well.  It is nice to start getting back to a routine after all the holiday activities.  We are still cooler here in Southern CA; but it is nice to have cooler temperatures.  Some of the US is a lot warmer than we are; which is very rare.  My daughter called today to tell me that she had 76 degrees in FL and we had 50's at that time.  

I created my grandson a birthday card for his 16th Birthday using Conie Fong "Skateboarding Benny" which is new this month.  You can find it here.  There is also a Conie Fong "Basketball Benny"; and you can find both of these sold as a set here.  I used CTMH Urban Paper Pack; which is only available for this month.
