Birthday Wishes

Hi Everyone!  Can you believe Thanksgiving is next week?!  I don't know where the month is going.  Things have been really hectic lately and I haven't had a chance to stamp or create a card for a couple weeks now.  I do still have a few cards left in my drafts that I haven't shared, though.

I made this card for my son's 10th birthday last month.  I love this little Surprise! image from Lili of the Valley.  It works great for feminine and masculine cards.  (I shared a feminine card last month using this image.)  I'm afraid I can't remember what papers I used on this card.  I think they were from My Mind's Eye.

The image was colored with copic markers and the sentiment is from the Vintage Sentiments - Occasions stamp set.  I finished the card off with some green twine, red buttons, and cork stars.  I love the texture the cork adds.

Have a great rest of the week!
