Son's Birthday Card

Son-Of-Mine hit the big 1-3 this week...

I had been hoping I'd have a few days to create his card but the tricksy teen decided to be ill so I in fact had the grand total of ... 3 hours....

I had soo many ideas but had to throw them all away in favour of this card, which I had the idea of creating to illustrate his 'geeky' PC and game loving side and his love of Football...

The images are taken from the Smirk paper pack and the backing was from Crafters Companion Birthday cd printed straight onto the card. The ribbon didn't work so well but I ran out of time..

..but he adored it so ho-hum Mum Did Good....


CES- no designer papers
