Is it? or NOT??

I'm in a little bit of a pickle..... you see I'd like to make a BOY card!! Not just any cute little 3, 4, 5... 8 or 9 year old card but a TEENAGE BOY CARD!!!! ARHHHHHH!! Yes I can hear you now, perhaps you've even run away from your computer at the thought of it but never-the-less we ALL need them at some point and I've wanted to showcase some of the wonderful new colours that Stampin' UP! are offering and also make some male cards too for stamp club this month!

So my question to you wonderful people: Does this tick the male, young person, teenager box?!?

Now though I'm probably leaving my self wide open for a slamming, I do want you to be honest! After all honesty is the best policy and I'd rather hear it from you, my talented card maker friends then.... well.... the wings are to show off the great window sheets and the polka dot, well who doesn't love their BIG SHOT, then the crown and splodges are inspired from page 52 in the catty and when you buy clothes for young people they are full of colour and brightness! ...enough of the babbling!! I NEED YOUR HELP!
I'm excited (and a little scared!) to hear what you have to say!

I love it! I think its PERFECT for a teenage card! I love how you made that sentiment "manly" and not so "curly and feminine"! Good one Sharnee!

love the textures so so much, the orange edge / polka dots / sponging etc. For a male card i would do less purple, but it still works. Nice job xxxx

Sharnee, I love it. All grungy and individual just like teenage boys see themselves! Good job xx

I think it looks great, but honestly, I don't know that teenage boys are that into cards, so they probably won't notice! Just make it so mum likes it :)

Hi Sharnee,
I think it looks fabulous and very definitely perfect for a teenager - honestly though I would have to say to me it says "girl" - it might be the wings and/or crown that makes me think that. But all the grunge and texture looks fantastic. Oh and thanks for the mention in the previous post :)
