Son’s Birthday Card

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday to Everyone!  Today I wanted to show a card I created for my son, Travis.  Last week Wednesday was his 20th birthday.  I was unable to send him his card since he was still deployed in Afghanistan and was due back into the states.  As of Monday he has left Afghanistan is on his way back home to California.  Unfortunately, I will not be seeing him until he takes his leave in September.

For his card I decoupage a motorcycle image.  I used Black Jute String to weave around silver brads and 3/8” Gingham Orange Multi Grosgrain Ribbon underneath the jute string. 

Here is my card:

Travis 20th BirthdayImage:  Motorcycle – Decoupage from The Lilac Garden (Decoupage by Audrey).

Sentiment:  Happy Birthday sentiment (Digital Delights by Louby Lou).

Card Stock:  Orange and black (TAC), Black and Orange Flame and HD Bar Front (Harley Davidson).

Embellishments:  Silver Brads,  Black Jute String and 3/8” Gingham Orange Multi Grosgrain (all ribbons are from Really Reasonable Ribbon).

Challenges I entered:

Paper Cutz Challenge #56 – Using Some Type of Metal (9/2)

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Hope everyone has a wonderful week!

Hugs, Kym
