Later Sk8r Birthday

I usually make girly cards, but since this weeks Farm Fresh challenge at The Greeting Farm was to use a boy image along with the colors orange, turquoise and silver, I decided to play along....I can use some more boy cards in my stash!  
I picked Ian from the Later Sk8r set.  I colored him with copics and paper pieced parts of his shirt.  To get the texture on his pants, I took a scrap piece of denim, soaked it in blender solution and pressed it on ~ love how this looks!  For the larger patterned paper piece I colored in all the dots in with a copic....although I should have probably figured out my layout first, then I wouldn't have had to color as many since most are covered up ;)  I was trying to figure out how to add the silver, at first I drew something on the orange band of his shirt, but didn't like it (one of the benefits of paper piecing, you can see what you like before actually gluing it on), so in the end I just decided on silver brads....safe, but it works.
