What a great teenage card. Love the fret brick backing and the image is coloured perfectly. I really like the brighter colouring in the graffiti and that great sentiment.

I really hope to see many more entries from you in our future monthly challenges on our challenge blog. Fantastic digi images from LEJ Designs up for grabs and other stuff from our amazing sponsors!
