Boys cards

Hubby wants a card for his friend who is retiring and he liked the card I made for our friend in Spain, now I know its a compliment but I'm not that keen on making complete copies of cards I've done. So I've used the sketch on Sketch Saturday and some Bloom and Grow papers so it almost the same.
There's a little chap who first birthday is coming up and the challenge on Stamp with fun is for Turquoise and brown colours and I found these papers not sure who by. I thought I would have a go at distressing with distress ink like Kim's tutorial but it looks like I overdid it a bit. I use the cricut to cut out the number and letters.
I've award from Clare which asked for 10 honest things about yourself will sort this out tomorrow.
