This is for my godson's 19th birthday. I made an attempt to CASE this card of Heather T's (this week's FS274), http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...mp;thumbcheck= .
It was in my favorites, as well as the favorites of 562 of my stamping friends!! But my dilemma was that I needed a card for a teenage boy. So I pulled out my H&M ATV set, which I bought to make him cards, since he loves anything with wheels & a motor, and saw that cute little daredevil on the motorbike & though, "How about a break in the woods to jump over?" Here is a teenager interpretation of Heather's gorgeous card!!
I changed the paper & ink colors, the trees to pine, made it a birthday card and added the daredevil.

This is so beautiful yet "manly" at the same time. I am sure your grandson will love it.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

AWESOME!!! That move is called the superman. The only reason I know this, is because my husband rode motocross just up until two years ago. Thankfully he NEVER tried a move like that. But I do have some cool photos of him jumping way high!
Back to your fantastic card! Your background is phenomenal!!! I just LOVE how your colors are so pretty and how you have your trees faded in the bg.
I have no doubt your godson is going to LOVE this card!!! I know I do! And I am going to show it to hubby when he gets home from work tonight! : ) So glad you shared!!!
