Moving Along With the Times + DT call

A friend came to visit me earlier today and asked me to make her a card for her son who will be celebrating his 18th Birthday next week :-) I can hardly believe he's all grown up ,,,he was one of my cub scouts not so long ago ,,, !!

I used a WOJ image,,, perfect for an 18th I thought !! I coloured him with copics and added a little ice stickles n he was ready to be stuck on all the layers :-)
I used some brown'khaki coredinationns and put that through the my big shot using the birthday embossing folder and sanded ;-)
I think the papers are HOTP,,, The stars and numbers were cut out on my cricut and sprayed with glimmer mist for sparkle :-)

I followed Claire's fab sketch on Moving Along With The Times Challenge The option was to use ice blue and white but am sorry to say I didn t do that :-(. When I just went to get the link I saw that there is a DT call so if anyone is interested you have to be quick !! The call ends later this evening !!

I also made this card to fit in with The Pink Elephant Challenge who has stars and strips as their challenge,,, well I do have 2 strips going across :-) ( I actually mis read it as stars and stripes until I went to get the link so if I don't qualify just scrub me off :-)) and the One Stop Craft Challenge who who has Stars and Stripes as their theme

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
I have blog candy on offer so if you would like to see what's on offer go and see my post for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge :-)
