Happy 12th Birthday

I believe in making cards for people well in advance ... this card is no exception - it is for my youngest nephew who I think is turning 12 next February ... thought I would get in early! I say 'I think he is 12' and I am almost sure he is 12 next year ... mind you I was sure that my eldest nephew was turning 21 next year as well and I was telling my mother and sister that I was planning to book my flight to NZ soon so I could be there for his 21st and I asked if they knew if he was having a big celebration for it ... they were dumb founded that I was getting in so early ... then they realised that I really thought he was turning 21 next year ... they all laughed and said he is only 20 next year! Lucky I didn't book my flight!
Anyway here is the card I made following the sketch from Annabelle Stamps blog (they are having their new releases this week and todays reveal was fabulous!). I am also submitting it for Birthday Sundaes - cakes and cupcakes and Cupcake Crafts - numbers.

materials - American Crafts coffee and white cardstock, Bazzill red devil cardstock; Jillibean Soup 'blossom soup' papers; Annabelle stamps 'party animals 1' stamps; Stazon timber brown ink; Marvy pens - blender 0, dark brown 18, cherry 65, sky blue 75, Tombow grey N75; Spellbinders petite scalloped circles large; Creative Memories circle cutters; Jillibean Soup 'blossom soup' cardstock stickers; Ranger white opal liquid pearls.

Thanks for looking.
