Happy Birthday Jacob

Friday is here and the second day of September....time is speeding along.

Todays card I created for my friends sons 15th birthday.  He has been known to sit in front of the computer or xbox for a little while each day.  So I thought this image from Mo Manning was very apt.  I have coloured him with my Copic pens and really like the end result.  Although I did colour in a little too much ..... can you spot my mistake?
To make the card I started with a blank white square card. Then a layer of Stampin Up Perfect Plum.  Next is a layer of paper I received as a prize.  I have attacked the edges of all the paper and card stock with the edge of scissors to give them a distressed look.  Even tore the green patterned papers a couple of times.  Thought it could not look too neat for a 15 yo boy.  Finished with the card with these wonderful brass looking star and square brads.  Also a quiet little Happy Birthday sticker.

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and I catch up again with you on Monday with my DT card for our new Unstampabelles challenge.  You still have a chance to enter into this months challenge - Wheels.  There is a great prize on offer from Kelly and Kaszazz.
