My son’s birthday card

Good morning everyone.  As I don’t have a passion for promarkers challenge card for you today (as our challenge runs for two weeks) I thought I would share a card I made for my son’s birthday, which was Sunday – I can’t believe my baby is 14 years old!!!!!  This is the card that his brother gave to him.  Actually this card could fit the challenge over at PFP as the digi image is new and all the papers are very old lol!  The image is so cool and its from Lori Boyd Designs – her images are so much fun and there is something for everyone.  Here is my card:

The cool dudes hairstyle is something similar to my sons but that’s where the similarity ends.  He is not at all sporty or outdoorsy – he just lives for his x-box, like most kids his age. 

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

Corrosive challenge – things that move (his skateboard)

Stamptacular challenge – fall-ing for you – use fall colours

The crazy challenge – on the go i.e. anything you like

Little paper shop challenge – funky edge (my punched edge)

Totally stampalicious challenge – anything goes

Paper play challenge – stars

Alphabet challenge – e is for embossing

Friday sketchers challenge – sketch

Lots to do challenge – embossing

Craft your days away challenge – texture (my embossing)

Claudia and company challenge – brown, cream + 1 other colour (my colour is red)

Party time Tuesday challenge – anything goes birthday

Scrap creations challenge – anything goes

Top tip Tuesday challenge – anything goes

I hope you have a wonderful Tuesday and don’t forget you have another week to enter the passion for promarkers “old & new” challenge.  There are fantastic prizes up for grabs and you can enter as many times as you like.  I will be back later with my project for the Some Odd Girl Hol-ODD-day blog hop.  Thanks for stopping by today.
