Now you go to the house of Aides in the secret places of the earth

It’s challenge time at Simply Challenged Challenges and I have a bright and fun card to share featuring Christian Hades from the Teen Scene Gods in Love collection from Simply B Stamps.  Our theme for the challenge is to crop your image, how easy is that?  So grab your fav Simply B Stamps’ image and join in the fun.

To make up my card I followed the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches although my square element ended up a bit big.  The original die cut featuring Christian Hades is the right size, but then I felt it needed the black border and, so, it ended up a bit large.

Given the bit of fire in his hand I had to go with warm colours on this with lots of orange, so I’m entering this in the current zesty colours challenge at the Alphabet Challenge.  The simplicity of the sketch and the colours worked well for this card that I plan on giving to a male colleague at work for his birthday.  As such I’m also linking this up at the Craft All Day challenge.
