Papertrey Ink Set-for a boy

I made this fun set of card and matching envelope for the challenge at Papertrey Ink. The circle stamps along with the sentiment and polka dot paper are all by Papertrey Ink. 

The background of my card is powdered chalk {Lime} and paint both by Stamp N Plus mixed together and sponged over a The Crafter's Workshop stencil. Love the two together with stencils. I've made a ton of backgrounds just playing with different colors. Doing this prep work makes me think I need more stencils:)

The name stamp is from a dollar store that I picked up soon after he was born almost 12 years ago. His birthday is next week and I think he will like this set I made just for him.

The border punch is by Fiskars. It's one of my favorites for male cards. Not too frilly. I used Stampin Up ink, Hero Arts black ink and Hero Arts Shadow inks on my card. 

Thanks for looking.
