A young man's birthday card

Good morning, peeps! Well, number 2 grandson was 15 last week and this is the birthday card I made for him. It's a digi image that's part of the Mikey Collection from Charmed Cards and Crafts. This collection gives you a whole load of images that are great for teenagers. Mind you, as I was assembling the card, it occurred to me that young people don't really play CDs anymore but then I haven't really caught up with iPods! It just keeps me firmly in the granny category in my grandson's mind I'm sure! Anyhoo, back to the topic in hand - the image was cut out with Nesties and I drew around the outside of the die to create the red mount. The DPs are an assortment from my stash, as were the buttons and the ribbons, and the stars were created from the Sizzix Primitive Stars die and distressed with Pumice Stone DI. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and it's been punched out with the now retired Stampin' Up Word Window punch. I must say, it beats me why any company would retire such a fundamentally useful punch, I really don't understand their reasoning! Here are the Copics I used: Skin: E000, E00, E01, E21, R11, R20 Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55, E33 Shirt & shoe: R22, R24, R27, R29, E19 Jeans: W1, W2, W3, W5, W7 Earphones: C1, C3,C5 CDs: B23, B24, B26, BG11, BG13, BG16, Y21, Y23, Y26 The inside of the card had matching papers and a pocket for a voucher 'cos, what can you buy for a 15 year old? Thank you for looking today and lease leave me a comment so that I can come and visit you too.
