Say Cheese!

I am sharing the card that I made for my youngest son's Birthday, he was seventeen last week.


I used a kit from The Clipart Fairy called 'Say Cheese', I cut everything out and inked the edges with Distress Ink.


I used my Die-namics 'By the Numbers' dies to cut the '17' and inked the edges before adhering it with foam pads.  I also decorated the inside using the same papers from the kit.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Inspiration Destination Challenge 41 - Always Anything Goes
Fab 'n' Funky Challenge 267 - Inspired by a Song (Camera by R.E.M.)
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 235 - Anything Goes
WordArt Wednesdays Challenge 191 - Anything Goes
The Male Room Challenge 14 - Song Title (Camera by R.E.M.)

Thank you for calling today, please leave a comment so that I know you've been and will be able to come and visit you.
