Just Scraps Challenge #2

It took me a little while to get my head around the Just Scraps Black/White/Red challenge - but here's my creation!  I'm kinda proud of it.  My son's 19th birthday is coming up in early April (oh my where have the years gone) and I wanted to create a card for him..something masculine.  

His favourite colour growing up was red!  As he grew into his tweens and teenager hood - black was added to that - black jeans, hoodies,, or white, or black t-shirts.  Here's a picture of Timothy in grade 4 - red and black shirt on - I believe he had black jeans on that day too.  LOL!  

The card measures 4 1/4" x 5 1/2".  I used black cardstock and... "just scraps"...of paper, black and white brads...I like the "dot/spot" theme!  The two punched circles are 1 3/4" and 1 1/2".  I bought a bunch of these cute pewter-like picture frames at the dollar store.  I plan on putting a pic of Timothy inside the frame (early years).  I didn't have a happy birthday stamp, so used my computer and a font called snap for the sentiment..I gently rubbed over it with my finger to give a "stamped" look.  I hope you like it.  Cheers - J.
