This is for my son's birthday card. Yikes, he is going to be 17 on Monday! Oh my, the emotions that sweep over me at the thought!
He loves Dr. Who so here is my nod to the Dr. Who quote, "Bow Ties are Cool". I hope I did it well enough that he likes it. Dr. Who's tie is in the red family but I wanted to play along with Linda's WT challenge to use a warm or cool color depending on our weather.
Ok, so.......in comparison to the deep freeze further north of us our temps might be considered mild, but for the peach state, 12 with -1 wind chill is ridiculously cold and I was out in it this morning!!! I ran errands...the stores were wonderfully empty! :) giggle!
Linda thanks for the fun challenge! When my young man sees it, I might have to change out the bow to make it a proper "Dr. Who" card but for now here it is in all its coolness!

I am right this minute watching the news and they are showing traffic accidents in TX because of the cold/snow/ice they have and I am thinking wow... so, 12 is way cold for you...
LOve this design Angie, that is so so "kewl" :)

Oh they do grow up so fast! Love your fantastic CAS, masculine card for your son! It has such a clean and neat look. I really like the color you used..but is it a purple with blue under tones or a blue with purple under tones? Either way it is a cool color (wink)!

Angie, I love this and how unique it is! I agree with Linda that teen boys are the hardest! This is perfect for him and such a clean, clever design!

You made a great card, and I am pretty sure your son will like it since I have one 16 year old son and one 18 year old son and they would think it is great. Simple cards can be hard to make because even a small error is noticable. Yours is perfect.
