Josh's Birthday Card

Hi all,

Thanks for stopping by today, two posts in one day ! that's amazing eh ?! Here is the card I have made for my son Josh's 12th Birthday in a couple of weeks. I have loosely followed the sketch on the Sketch Saturday blog and when I was looking around the lovely Jeannettes blog I saw that she is a guest designer on the Cupcakes craft challenge blog (well done you!) and this card fits their challenge this week which is to make a scene.

I have made this with SU! Basic black cardstock and some red card from stash, all distressed around the edges. The image was created with a comic making kit Josh had last year for his birthday, but I then scanned it on my printer so I could watercolour it with my felt tip pens, I am quite pleased with how it turned out in the end... Few buttons fron stash and a knot of ribbon added with glossy accents.

Let me know what you think and please, don't forget to enter my candy giveaway,
