Mo's Challenge # 20

Dawn Burnworth, our hostess this month, has come up with an interesting sketch for us this week.

I immediately thought of "Paul Texting" when I saw it!
It's always hard to make cards for teen-aged boys, but you can find some great images for teens at Mo's Digital Pencil. 

I've colored him with Copics and mounted the PTI white onto a slightly larger Yo-Yo Yellow CS panel. The 3 1/4 inch squares behind the panel are Basic Grey and Making Memories DP. The turquoise panel was embossed using my Cuttlebug and the diamond plate embossing folder. It's all mounted on a Brilliant Blue 5" x 7"  card.
The vertical "Happy Birthday" sentiment is from  StacyStamps (Don't know it they're still in business.), and "Dude" was spelled out using Just Right stamps.
I added some coordinating buttons from Basic Grey, securing them with colored hemp.
