GREEN with envy!


What would it be like to be 18 in 2010, wonder is it any better today than it was when I was 18...probably lol. I used the lovely Mikey from Charmed Cards for this card for my nephew's 18th birthday. He just likes listening to music lol so the backing paper from Kanban was ideal. I made a little beanie hat for him and sat on his head and trimed his hair to fit. I added some glittery letters for his name and stamped the birthday circle and added 18 (stamp from stampingallday).
This card suits the following challenges:
1. Creative Craft Challenge - for the man in your life
2. My Time to Craft - xtra special
3. Dotties World - go green
4. Crafty Ann's Challenge - colours of your flag (green, white and gold)
5. The Townscrapper - save a tree(use scraps or 1 piece of card)

I agree that the curtain is amazing...I would have thought it was fabric....great card for an 18th.
I'm not sure if it would be more fun to be 18 now....everything was a lot simpler back in the 70s!!

Hi Pinky

He looks a bit of a cool dood, just right for the lads with a hint of music thrown in.

So clever Pinky. I love the way you've given Mikey a haircut and a hat to personalize the image and the background is fabulous.
