Boy Birthday


I made this card a while back, and realized I never posted it!  I drew inspiration from Leigh's card here and Karen's card here to come up with this birthday card for my nephew's 7th birthday.



Here is a peek at the inside.  The Toys R Us giftcard that is tucked into the library card pocket will probably be the most interesting part of the card for him.



Supplies Used (PTI):
Stamps:  Grunge Me, Boy Basic Circles, Rock On, IO Cover a Card Distressed Corduroy, Big Birthday Wishes
Paper:  Kraft, White, Pure Poppy, True Black
Other:  Library Card Pocket Die, EK Success Edger punch, Circle Punch


Thanks for Visiting
