Hello Everyone!  It's Birthday week in the Jones House with 4 close family birthdays in 5 days!  As you can imagine, there's a lot going on right now!  The first cab off the rank is my son Zac, who turned 16 this week!  16!  I can't believe he's getting so big (in fact he's 6 feet 1 inch now!) and now looking to get his learner driver permit!  EEEEEP!!!!  Of course that means that I was faced with the dreaded MAN CARD so I decided to make the 16 the feature of the card along with some fun sneaker and star paper.

I've used a base of Marina Mist, layered with River Rock and topped with Maja Designs Denim and Friends paper.  I've added another strip of Marina Mist across it and then created another panel of Chocolate Chip, Marina Mist and more Maja Designs paper.  Under this I've tucked a couple of notched tags in So Saffron and River Rock.  I've cut the star of So Saffron using a large star die and made the 16 out of River Rock using Large Number Dies - airbrushing a little Copic E84 while in the die for some shading.  I've cut the name using an old Spellbinders alphabet that would fit the space.

Stamps - NONE!
Ink - NONE
Paper - Maja Designs Denim and Friends, Marina Mist, River Rock, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip
Accessories - ODBD Large Number Dies, Spellbinders Star, Upper Case Font Alphabet

That's all from me today, thanks for popping by and hope you are inspired to stamp.....or die cut!  :)

Great card!! Perfect for a 16 year old. My "baby" is 17 now and 6'2" and still growing I think! Where does the time go??!! He now has his DL and through it has freed up a lot of "taxi mom" time I always hold my breath and say a prayer when he is out driving by himself LOL. HOpe all is well, hugs to you and enjoy all the birthday celebrations :)
