Birthday Wishes

We all say that men's cards are the hardest to make, but teenage boy's have to be the most difficult ever.  I struggled to make this card for days, it's for my 13 year old son to give his 16 year old brother.  In the end I'm quite pleased with the way it turned out, I just hope he likes it.

The papers and the sentiment are from Polka Doodles Pretty Tuff CD and the letters and numbers are from Double Sprinkles of Kraft a collaboration between Polka Doodles and Willow Designs.  Everything is matted onto Kraft card stock.

This is the inside of the card, I've decorated it to match the front:

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

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge 78 - for someone special
The Corrosive Challenge 139 - Anything EXCEPT Christmas
Allsorts Week 134 - Blue and brown
Glitter Geeks Week 28 - Anything Goes
Card Crafters Circle - Celebration

That's me finished for today, I need to get organised for the birthday celebrations tomorrow.  Take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
