A Snowboarder's Cabana

Hi everyone--happy mid-week!  We're in the mad dash here in our house--DD birthday is today so there's lot of preparations! One of our nephews also has a December birthday and I was inspired by the fantastic work over at CAS(E) this Sketch and Fab Friday:

What a unique sketch, right?!  Combined with these fabulous holiday/winter colors, I had the perfect inspiration for my sports-lovin' nephew's card:
You might  be surprised to know that there is absolutely no stamping on this card--none. at. all!  It was all made with My Digital Studio!!  Once I printed out the design onto Whisper White cardstock, I just matted it with black and added it to a Coastal Cabana card base.  I love the flexibility of designing cards in MDS.  I can resize, color and modify to my heart's content! If you're interested, a full list of the MDS files I used is at the end of this post.
I couldn't find a suitable sentiment to coordinate with a "daring adventure" so I just used MDS, again, to type up my own.  I added a few more elements and printed it along with the front of the card.  I hope our nephew likes it!  As I am just getting this in under the wire, I'm going to keep this post short 'n' sweet!  Have a great day, friends!
Paper: Coastal Cabana, Basic Black & Whisper White CS
MDS stamp Brush Sets: Extreme Snowboard, Daring Adventure, Woodgrain, Chevron Designer Kit, Ink Splatter 6
