Happy Birthday

A super quick post today...it's been a busy weekend as we celebrated my son's 13th birthday.  I whipped up a super quick card for him as I'm not great at masculine cards and I knew this would probably just lay around.

I took my patterned paper and randomly stamped different types of the #13 on the card and then just added the happy birthday banner.

I followed the Retro Sketches #30 sketch for this one.

Card details:
Stamps: Numbers2stamp from The {Stamps} of Life and Sentiment Sampler from Paper Smooches
Cardstock: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler and My Mind's Eye Summer Splash
Inks: Your Style Blue Me Away from Clear & Simple Stamps
Embellishments: Maraschino twine from The Twinery

Happy birthday to your son! 13! The tween hours... :) Perfect card for a boy! (I never know what to put on the tween / teen boy cards)

Love the simplicity of this sketch and what you did with it. I think this card is perfect for a 13 year old!
