My son’s birthday card!

I know it’s been a week since my son’s 16th birthday but I wanted to share his card with you.  I also wanted to say a big thank you once again for all your suggestions and help with the drummer image.  He loved his card by the way so I was super pleased about that.  Here is what I made for him:

b'day card (56)

I decided to go with The Greeting Farm image as it was so funky!  The card is A5 in size. 

Now when I made the card I wasn’t aiming to fit any challenges but luckily for me it fits in with quite a few this week :)

Anyone for Anya challenge – Lucky numbers

OSAAT challenge – going dotty (my paper)

A spoonfull of sugar challenge – 3 designer papers and 3 buttons

Papertake challenge – shiny/sparkly and special (my card is obviously special and metal charm)

Fab ‘n’ funky challenge – metal mania (haven’t got much but used a star charm)

Cute card Thursday challenge – someone special

Digi doodle challenge – use ribbon

I love digi challenge – charming

Crafty Ann’s challenge – anything goes

DU2DS challenge – anything goes

Stamp something challenge – celebrate something (my son’s birthday)

Stamping for the weekend challenge – a card for a male

Allsorts challenge – birthday

Our creative corner challenge – masculine birthday

Secret crafter Saturday challenge – metal (again used a charm)

Stamp, scrap & doodle challenge – masculine

Sweet stampin’ challenge – get personal

Not too bad, considering I didn’t have any challenges in mind when I made it lol!  I hope you are having a good weekend so far.  I’m off to finish my DT cards.  Thanks for stopping by today.
