Skater Dude!

So my son is turning 9 this weekend. As he gets older, Super Heroes have become less important and Sports have become everything. This year he wanted his party to be skater themed. I asked him if he wanted me to make his invitations and his reply was "No, I don't want anything babyish." I asked him to take a look at the SVG Cutting Files skater file and he quickly changed his mind. I began to design these, but I had no time for paper-piecing 15 cards; so I decided to print the JPG instead. I fussy cut around it and then used a distress tool to add distressing around the edge of the image and around the maroon and black layered cardstock. I finished up the first one and showed it to him. He was so excited and exclaimed, "This is the coolest invitation you have ever made me." That made my day. Thank you SVG Cutting Files for helping me be a hit with my precious son! I truly appreciate it!!!

I will enter this card into the following challenges:
