16th Birthday


This is for my nephew's 16th birthday.  He's the oldest of all the nieces and nephews and I remember when he was born like it was yesterday.  There's something really special about the first child born to one of your siblings.  I still cannot believe that he's turning 16.

I used the Mat Stack 3 die and stamp set along with Make a Wish additions for my images and sentiment.  I trimmed off an edge of the Top Note die cut from Stampin' Up just for something different.  I also thought I'd add a bit of a black scalloped circle behind the Mat Stack for some visual interest.  Hope that isn't too girly for him:)



This card is also for two challenges:  Wee Memories Birthdays and Parties and Card Caravan #6 Birthdays.

This is beautiful, Sara! Love the framing you did - esp the scallop behind the mat stack die cuts - cool! And with the bold colors you used, definitely not too feminine for a boy!

This is a very manly card! Love the colors, and those make a wish gifts are some of my favorites. I know what you mean about the first born of a sibling. I am closest to my oldest niece. When she was born, I wasn't even married, so she was such a big deal to me.
