Happy Birthday Nathan

Hi Bloggers.

Today I'm sharing the card that I've made for my son's 16th birthday which is today. I'm at Ally Pally but he says that's ok because he's going out.

I've been really naughty and I haven't used a Creative Expressions stamp on this - simply because I don't have one that I felt was suitable. Teenage boys, I think, are the hardest group to make cards for. Nathan isn't really into sport (except free-running) so that makes it even harder. We're cat lovers in our house so I thought this image was the best for the occasion.

The image is called Kitty Chorus and is from Stamps Happen. We've had it for years and I still love it. I stamped it in Jet Black Archival and it's been coloured with Lyra Watercolour Crayons. The background has been embossed using the Couture Creations Houndstooth folder through the Grand Calibur. I passed it through a second time to extend the pattern.

I coloured some chipboard letters with a black promarker and added a kitty embellishment from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by.
