Uber Cool Teenage Birthday Card

The hardest cards for me to make are ones a teenager might like. I think that is an universal problem because they also are the ones we receive the least of at Send a Smile 4 Kids. When I saw the cell phone set from Clearly Besotted and the slang set from Paper Smooches, I just had to get them to make some fun cards for teens. I started with a white card base, and added the corner piece and the thin lines of ombre orange paper. I stamped all the fun sentiments from Paper Smooches (totes:), and then embossed the whole card with an embossing folder from Sizzix. I stamped the cell phone and BDay sentiment (from Clearly Besotted) on blue paper, cut it out and attached with pop dots to raise.

I am entering this card in Melissa's Birthday challenge at Tomboy, and the Embossing challenge at Creative Card Crew.
