...I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times

I’ve got a CAS card to share today featuring Martial Arts Boy, from Kenny K, made for a friend’s birthday.

Given the discipline of karate I thought a restrained monochromatic card would best suit the image and the current sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches was perfect.  I made the two horizontal elements into my sentiment, which I printed straight on to my base cardstock.  I put a second piece of card behind my image just to add a bit more interest with the black border.

I think the pop of yellow works well too, I went with that colour as my friend recently got his yellow belt in karate.  He takes his youngest daughter, a sweetie who is about to turn six, to karate so figured he’d learn too and he loves it hence featuring it on his card.

Clean and simple is the current theme over at Cute Card Thursday so I am entering my card there.  Over at the Male Room they are looking for letters, which I have on my card in my sentiment and it is for a male so I’m also entering their challenge.
