Trash Pack Birthday Card

I made this card for my friends son who turned 11yo on the weekend.  Normally I do a Looney Tunes card as he loves all the characters but I thought it was time for something different.  Last time I saw him he had these little toys that I had not seen before.  Since discovered they are the 'Trash Pack' and you can collect different series of them.  My niece just loves them too.

So I found a photo of some 'Trashies' to use for my card front.  I do like the bright and cheery colours.  The card base is Stampin Up (SU) Wild Wasbi, a layer of SU Marina Mist and a piece of SU Designer Series Patterned paper.  I added some silver star stickers to the left hand side.  Found these wonderful chipboard letters to spell out 'Birthday'.  I painted them with two layers of yellow acrylic paint and with the second layer I smudged it up by daubing with a tissue.  Thought it needed a rougher look as it would be with some trashies.  I have sprayed it with SU Gold Smooch Spritz but the photo does not bring that up at all.

Time to get this day started well get our daughter up and ready for school.
Have a fun day everyone.
