Happy Birthday Harry

I made this card for my eldest grandson who is 12 on 14th September. The graffiti wall is a Magnolia stamp, the skateboarding boy is from Sugar Nellie and the stars are from a Cute Companions set of stamps from Crafters' Companion. All the images were coloured with ProMarkers and I added a little glitter pen to the stars on the skateboard and the skull and crossbones. I embossed the black layer in my Cuttlebug using a CB embossing folder, then dragged a lime green chalk ink pad around the edge. The Scrabble tiles spelling out HARRY were bought recently at my local Art Shop. Inside the card I made a small pocket with another piece of the black embossed card and slipped some money inside as he is saving up to buy some new computer games. Hope you've enjoyed stopping by to see this card, leave me a comment if you wish, I love reading them all :0)

me again! yes the sentiment with the little mice comes on the same set - it's the clear Penny Black set called Hugs. I can bring them with me next time we get together, I do have quite a collection of the clear sets now and one more on it's way!
hugs, annie x
