Dude, It's a Paper Smooches Cool Shades Challenge

The moment I saw the fun and trendy colors in the current Paper Smooches Cool Shades Challenge I thought they'd be great on a card for a teenager and the two sets I used on this card, Teen Routine and Slang Gang, came right to mind. Cards for teens is one of the harder categories for me when it comes to making cards for OWH but I always try to include a few in every box. 

You can't tell in the top photo but when I paper pieced the white area, I gave the 'windows' on these a bit of shine with my glossy packing tape trick. It adds a fun little detail and is much more noticeable in person. The blue inside each window is just marker that is colored onto the white paper before the glossy tape was applied.

I was struggling to choose just one of the sentiments in the set so I decided I'd put a few together into what could probably be considered a complete sentence for many teens. LOL. I hope this card brings a smile to the face of a hero and to the teen who gets it.

Happy Crafting!

STAMPS: Teen Routine, Slang Gang (Paper Smooches)
