On your 18th Birthday

My youngest son was eighteen yesterday and this is the card that I made for my eldest to give him.


I used my Die-namics Fishtail Flags die and papers from the Echo Park Pinstripes collection to make the banner and for the strip along the bottom.


The sentiment is from the Digi Stamp Boutique Milestone Word Art collection.


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

Crafty Calendar July Challenge - Punches and/or Dies
Cute Card Thursday Challenge 432 - Add a Banner/Flags
City Crafter Challenge 318 - Hang out the Flags
That's Crafty! Challenge - Masculine
Crafting with Dragonflies Challenge 60 - Sentiment as the Main Focus

Thank you for calling this morning, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.

Adding the bunting and a multi colored strip of paper is a great idea for adding lots of color to a CAS masculine design. Congrats to your son, turning 18 is quite a big deal.
I just got home from a wonderful holiday, now I'll enjoy one week at home before starting work again, hoping to get lots of crafting time:)
