Let Me Count the Ways - Card Patterns/Color Chef Challenges

 
Here's a look at a card I put together today for Card Patterns #31 Challenge, as well as Kelly Jo's Color Chef Challenge - red, orange, black and white. I was very inspired by this picture I took of my adorable little guy yesterday in front of his preschool for his first day. I really wanted a "guy" look to the card - something with an edge, that as a older boy/teenager he would likely respond to vs. something too sweet. Enjoy!  :) 
P.S. Just had to add this since it's so cute: My nearly 7 y/o daughter just gave her input on this card: "It looks like someone's taking pictures at the county fair in the fall - I love it!"- Out of the mouths of babes! I do "see" the camera image that she's talking about....hmmm another idea for another card, maybe?!
