Happy Birthday Jake!

I'm late posting my card this week, I've had camera problems lately, some days it works some days it doesn't, very frustrating!
 More importantly though, I have another reason for my absence.
My son is 13 today! (time flies by too soon)
so preparations have been under way for the last few days.
one chocolate brownie stack, coated with chocolate fudge icing, cadbury's fingers and topped with maltesers all ready to be devoured after dinner today.
If I can get a photo on here I will, it has taken me ages to upload my card though.

Onto my card...

The image is pre-coloured and is from a collection named 'Mikey' from Charmed Cards & Crafts. Everything else is from my stash, Happy Birthday Wishes sentiment is from SU's Fun & Fast Notes stamp set. The punches used on the backing piece and also the large star punched out of a circle of card are also by SU. I have also used a mini star punch by clippunch.

Happy Birthday Jake, you may be a teenager now, but you'll always be our baby boy. xx

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges...
