Happy Birthday Son

Something a little different from me today - it is my eldest son's 19th Birthday and this is the card I made for him.

I have used papers from the Crafter's Companion Camden Town CD and paper pack along with a topper from the same collection.

The striped paper is from an Ooh La La CD and the sentiment tags are LOTV.  Everything has been seriously distressed, something a little unusual for me as I don't like the mess.

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

Divas by Design Challenge - Anything goes
Paper Shelter Challenge - Anything goes
Scrappers' Delights Challenge 37 - Anything goes
It's All About the Vintage Challenge 82 - Knot
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper December Challenge - Anything goes with Patterned Paper

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is much appreciated.

Your son will love this one for sure. I'm not big on distressing either, but you did a fabulous job with it. Enjoy your day.
