Personalized card

A few weeks ago (before the sickies hit our house), my son went to one of his best friends birthday.  When it comes to birthdays for tweens & teens, I just go with a gift card now (however Jacob didn't think a gift card was enough, so we had to get Pokemon cards too lol).  So, I created a fun custom card for a 10 year old boy...bold colors and nothing to foo foo.  
The "happy birthday" sentiment is from the Sophie's Sentiments stamp set, then I stamped "josh" using the Quinn's ABC's set (then colored in the letters using blue copic markers).  I didn't like all of the colors of the star chipboard, so I colored over them with red & blue Copic markers.

Materials Used:
Lawn Fawn Stamps: Quinn's ABC's & Sophie's Sentiments
October Afternoon pattern paper
Fancy Pants chipboard
Spellbinders Labels One Nestabilities
May Arts twine
Copic markers
red ink
black ink

Such a fun that even adults would enjoy receiving one. :) The colors are so bold that it makes me smile just by looking at it!
And the stars are perfect!
