Simply the Best

This is the card that I made for my Mum to give my youngest son for his eighteenth Birthday.


I used a decoupage image from the Docrafts Papermania Mr. Mister Collection, it's die cut decoupage but I needed to trim it quite a lot.  I die cut the sentiment with a Marianne CrafTables die and the numbers were cut with a Tonic Studios die.  I inked through the dies to add some definition.


I also decorated the inside to match.


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

Through The Craft Room Door - Always Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion Challenge 319 - Always Anything Goes

Thank you for calling today, your company is much appreciated.

This is a tricky age group to make cards for, male teenagers and young men. The design doesn't feel childish and it's not too adult, you're spot on!
