Happy 16th Birthday

Today Darian's (our eldest son)16th Birthday.
Our friend Barbara put his birthday on the radio and he won the birthday from May's Bakery.
Here's the Card I quickly made this morning.
 Last week on NZSU blog Paula set us a colour challenge to use, River Rock, Cherry Cobbler & Marina Mist or River Rock, Tangerine Tango & Not Quite Navy.
I didn't get a chance to play last week, so I decided to use River Rock, Tangerine Tango & Not Quite Navy to make Darian's card.
I used the Sketch Challenge from JAI#101 challenge this week.
I have read somewhere not sure where that Tangerine Tango is the colour of the year for 2012.
Yay I love Tangerine Tango.
 I liked this sketch and found it quite easy to do, I made this card within 20 minutes.
 I have used 'Circle Circus' and 'Bring on the Cake' Stamp Set
'Circle Circus' is a great set for men's cards.
I stamped the River Rock circle with River Rock Ink, then I over stamped in Not Quite Navy then using Tangerine Tango Marker coloured in the 1 and 6 and circled the th.
The square of Tangerine Tango, I stamped with Bleach.
Here's the inner, sorry the photos not the best.
I was very pleased with the finished card.
