Kickin' Birthday!

Well this is the 3rd birthday card for the same lad - I guess I'm lucky that he has varied interests! LOL
The main image is Karate Boy stamp by Stampabilities. Its been colored in with Prismacolors pencils. It made all the difference to the image to shadow it with a medium/light blue pencil. I took the cue for the colours on the card from the Hair and Belt colors of the recipient. The mats are Bazzill and the base paper is from the DCWV glitter stack - -- WOOHOO managed to use glitter and pink (or is that just a funny shade of red?) for a boy card! The sentiment I printed out using Wordart on the computer as I definitely don't have a alpha set that is oriental (orange with a brown outline). LOL

Birthday boy said this was his favourite card and I have to agree, though quite simple in stamping, matting, layering and technique - it's probably my favourite too!
