Mystery hostess and birthday invites

This is little late in posting but thanks to everyone who could attend my mystery hostess party. It was huge success. Shawna won the mystery hostess and walked away with a box full of goodies. She was pretty excited.
This is one of the cards we made at my mystery hostess party. My oldest son turned 8years old yesterday! (Wow how the time flies.) I decided it would make a great invitation to his party so I made a few more.
We did the direct to paper technique for the background on the Marina Mist and Early Espresso pieces. Such an easy and cool effect for male cards.
Lots of distressing too.
Ingredients: Marina Mist, Early Espresso, Cherry Cobbler cs and ink. Black stazon ink, WW cs. Extreme Elements and Skateboard stamp sets, distressing tool, color spriter tool, brads.

Hmm, not sure what a direct to paper technique is, but the card looks fabulous!
