One of a Kind

Made a bright card this weekend. 
This will be used for as a male birthday card.

Colors were inspired by The Play Date Cafe's inspiration photo

The design is based on the sketch from Seize the Birthday #13: masculine.

The papers are from Echo Park's "Little Boy" collection.
The cute camera die cut came from Amy.  It was white.  
I colored it with distress ink and added some of the papers to the holes.  
There's Glossy Accents on the flash window.

 Here's the color inspiration:

Here's the sketch:
