For Jake

This is one of 3 cards I have to show you today. This first one is the card i've made for my son for his birthday, it isn't until November, but I thought i'd get it made early.
This image is so much like him at the moment, infact he is playing his xbox and has his headset on at this very moment...

The image is 'teenage boy gaming' from Jelly Park.
The patterned papers used are by My Minds Eye (Stella & Rose - Hattie). I added a 'tiny bubbles' embossed piece of plain navy cardstock behind the image.
The sentiment is from The Alley Way Stamps, but I wrote '15th' myself.
I used dienamics 'by the letter' dies for the word son, and added card candi to finish.

I'm entering this card at:
Inky Impressions - masculine
Seize the Birthday - anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey - anything goes
Freshly Made Sketches - sketch by Cindy

Back in a mo with number 2 ;)

UPDATE: woohoooo!
