Teen Cyclist

I had to make a dreaded teen boy card for a friend's son who will be fourteen tomorrow.  Male cards are hard enough, but I find teen boy cards the hardest!  The lad it's for is mad keen on bikes, he even builds them himself so I decided to go with that as a theme.  He did his first twenty five mile off road cycle when he was just five years old!  My five year old still has stabilisers and can hardly go in a straight line!
The silhouette was cut on Mum's Silhouette machine, thanks Mum!
The papers have been in my stash for years, I can't remember what make they are, but I'm down to my last few sheets.  I'll be gutted when they're used up because I find it so hard to find male papers I like.
The sentiment is from a Papermania set and the nesting star dies I've used are Xcut.
I'm entering this card in the following challenge -

  3. Hi Wendy, I seem to be constantly playing catch-up in blogworld at the moment! You've created some beautiful cards since I was here last - I really do love White on White and yours is beautiful!

    This is a great boys card as well - he obviously must be a really avid biker! My Emily (who is 5 in June) can ride, but only with stabilisers and 15mins she's about done!!
