21st Birthday #2


From me to dear grandson.
Another 8x8" card and this took me all day to make like the last one.  This is totally different to what I had in mind but I like it better than the project I had planned
I recently acquired some flimsy gold paper and glued it to a piece of card to make the numbers

Hand cut big gold numbers embossed with CB folder
Computer generated greeting scroll
Corners - SB lattice accents
Star punch
DP unknown/forgotten, had it printed off for a while

I'd like to enter...
Alphabet CB  - Y for years
Cut it Up   #63 - emboss
Cardz 4 Guyz #54 - anything goes
Dies R Us #18 - embossing folder
Dream it Up -  birthday wishes - January challenge
Tuesday Throwdown   #228 - embossing
 Crafts 4 Eternity    #210 - numbers
Country View - something new to you - gold paper!

Thank you for stopping by today and for all the much appreciated comments on my last post :)
Cheers me dears
