Evan is 16

My youngest son Evan turned 16 on Friday and this is the card I made for him, he got a shiny new guitar for his birthday so I used my Fender digi stamp available here coloured with Promarkers, along side the hand cut numerals. I distressed the edges of the backing paper and stamped some music sheets in pale blue (hard to see in the pic) and used a roller stamp to stamp some inspirational words. I used some sequin waste and a paint dabber from Jenni Bowlin to create the texture on the numbers and rub on's from Making Memories for the  word Birthday, happy was written by hand. Finally I added the  cable from the guitar which was a rub down from Basic Grey.
