The last one ..

This is the last one of these cards using my Woodware 18th Birthday stamp, well at least until my 16 year old turns 18.


This one is for my eldest son's best friend, they have known each other since nursery and I popped a photograph of them both when they were about 5 years old inside the card.


I paper pieced the stamped image with papers from the My Mind's Eye Oxford Lane paper collection and the stars are an X-cut die with a good coat of 3D Crystal Lacquer.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

The Male Room Challenge - Seeing Stars
Sweet Stamps Challenge 184 - Masculine Birthday
Creative Corner Challenge - Anything Goes
Brown Sugar Challenge 109 - Anything Goes

I have enjoyed looking back on all the creations I have missed and love this 18th birthday card very much.

The idea of enclosing a photograph from the lads earlier days is brilliant!

Hope you have had a good weekend.

Brilliant card Pauline I love these large number stamps I have been tempted to treat myself to a few of them but when I see how many stamps I have still unused I shake my head and say 'no', lol, a truly fab creation.
