21st Birthday

Hello everyone,

This is a card I made yesterday for my son's pal's 21st birthday. I couldn't show it yesterday as the pal was having a surprise birthday party and I didn't want to spoil it for him (not that he would look at my blog!!)

I always find it difficult to make cards for males especially for younger ones i.e. around this age, especially when it is from one male to another. Apparently, there are a few of his friends who have a forthcoming 21st birthday, alot of them male, so I suppose I best get practising and finding new images. Any help would be appreciated.

Wilson, as he is known, plays football and I tried to copy the football shirt from memory, not sure I did a good job though.

I used the Cupcakecrafting Tumble Ted CD Rom and an 8x8 card from my stash. As there weren't any numbers just alphabets on the CD, I used Craft Artist to make some tiles with both letters and numbers. I used paper piecing to make the shirt which is blue and yellow - can't quite see that from the photo. I used my promarkers to colour in one of the shirts (as one is left blank on the CD). The pen used was Buttercup although it looks a little dark on the photo.

Hope you like it Wilson. Have a great night and Happy 21st Birthday.

Keep crafting!!
