When you have teenage boys, no hand made birthday card is ever cool enough. I am always trying to impress my kids with their birthday cards!My soon-to-be Sixteen year old son is VERY hard to impress. Don't get me wrong, he enjoys my stamping work -- just not when it comes to cards made for HIM!
This card was made for his birthday. My oldest baby is turning 16 -- soon to be driving. How did this happen? I am still 30 at heart, so I must have been VERY young when I had him.
But I digress...the Blogger's Challenge was to make a birthday card, so I used a Starch Smoosh background (August 2009 issue of the TJ Newsletter) with some Impression Obsession stamps. I hope I at least get some appreciation from him for using the gorgeous metallic paper from The Paper Temptress!! Hopefully, shimmer will impress him where my skills cannot.
Happy Birthday Ian!
