What's Up

I just love this "Friend Request" set and "Smartphone" die set combination from MFT!!  I find it to be absolutely perfect for guys (of any age) and even some females, too.  I made this card for a young man at our church.  He just turned 17, so definitely not into some cutesier stuff that younger boys might be okay with.  
Pretty clean and simple, and I even got to use up some of the patterned paper I've been working on!  I cut the phone face out of white and then again in black to get the "home" button and the details at the top, then I cut the "case" out of a dark gray.  I'm not sure what this guys phone looks like, but I think his dad's is very similar to this and in any case, it seemed like a good masculine color combo.  I stamped a bit of splatter on the background to give some interest without having to load the card down with fussy bits.

Stamps: MFT "Friend Request"; YNS "Large Splatter"
Dies: MFT "Smartphone'
