Teenage Birthday

Hello all,

Wow, another two weeks gone since my last post! Unbelievable, it feels like time is slipping away from me right now. I'm mega busy at work and the crafty room has really been too hot to even go into, let alone have a long crafty session! But occasions still come up when I need to make a card, so I made this card over the course of a week, a little work here and there, for my cousin's 16th birthday. I can't believe he is turning 16 already, when I can still remember him zooming around in his toy car :) We don't get to see much of each other, as it's really my husband's cousin and lives in Scotland, but he and my FIL are planning a trip in June to come and see us in our new home, which I am looking forward to.

Here's the card:

* Studio Light image and DPs
* Matted silver mirror card, distressed with distress tool and ink
* Pebbles Chips Black chipboard (love the packaging, it even comes with a nutrition facts section!)
* Brads from my stash
* Personal Impressions sentiment stamps
* Stars border punch on the inside mirror card

* Chocolate, Coffee & Cards (For the Boys)
* Crafty Catz (Card for a Man)
* Fairytale Challenges (Boys + Men)
* Stampin' Dragon (Birthdays & Boys)
* Charisma Cardz (No Flowers)
* SJ Papercraft (All about the Boy)
* 2 Sisters (Bring on the Boys)
* Totally Gorjuss (Something New - Pebbles Chipboard)
* One Stop Challenge (For the Boys)
* Simon says Stamp (Father's Day/Special Male)
