HAPPY BIRTHDAY JON !!!!

Hello Everyone :)
Today I wanted to show you the card I made for my son Jonathan. He'll be 21 years old on Monday ! HOW DID THIS HAPPEN ??!!! He's the baby of the family and already a young man ! WOW ! 
Since I had to come up with a guy card, I got the idea of using a Halloween theme since his birthday is in October and I remembered that for his 1st birthday we did a costume party and it was so much fun. He was such a cute baby dressed up like a pumpkin :) I even made the costume myself. He actually won 1st place at out church Halloween party that year wearing that costume :) I'm so blessed to be his mom and I really hope he likes the card :)
Most of the cuts are from the Paper Doll Cart. The sentiment frame is from Gypsy Wanderings. I came up with the sentiment myself, pretty clever, huh :)  And I used my Gypsy to center the sentiment exactly in the frame space. I did a lot of inking and chalking since I couldn't add too many other embellishments
being a guy card and all. 
It's a larger card at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2. 



Pin It!

  5. Very cute! The photo of him as a little boy is very touching. I am making gift bags for the daughter's class and I did a a blackout in my Gypsy for my haunted house just like you! I love this cartridge, but I find that I have to make a lot of blackouts for the accessories. In fact, I tried to make a shadow and it just wouldn't work, did you happen to try that as well?
