Ssshh Brady's Birthday Card

My eldest son Brady turns 16 tomorrow ~ where did that time go? He's busy learning his road rules for his Learner Permit.... so driving lessons here we come! I'm sure he'll be way to busy to notice I've posted his card here before he receives it.

I have used the sketch from this weeks Just Magnolia Challenge, however I've turned it on it's side as you can see from the picture below.

I've used the Kaiser "Rewind" paper pad which has some fabulous patterns for teenage boys! All the panels have been sewn and I've added a star and button as opposed to a flower. I love these buttons that I purchased on the weekend from a new store "Creations in Paper" that we found on a Girls Day Out in Montville. Julie the owner is lovely and you can visit her blog for details here. We found lots of lovely goodies including Magnolia and Greeting Farm Stamps and will be sure to visit again soon.

My image Guitar Edwin is coloured with Copics and placed on foam dots. Brady has been having Guitar lessons every week so I just had to buy this image!

Thanks for stopping by ~ Hope you had a great weekend!


  1. Fantastic card. Beautifully colored, too! Happy 16th birthday to your son. It's funny how fast they grow. One minute you're holding them in your arms, the next, you're standing next to them while they apply for their driver's license!

  2. So gorgeous card Sharon,i love your image and your papers.
