Cool 21st

Good afternoon,

                          Today I would like to share this card I have made for my mum to send to my nephew on his 21st birthday next week. Cool male cards are very difficult to make, but these characters from the Urban Gang Digi Collection over at Make it Crafty made it easy to create a card.



The backing papers are from the Nitwit Coffee Talk collection.
The images were coloured with Promakers.
All of the paper embellishments are from the Nitwits kit but the text and numbers were added onto them using my PC
My mum is thrilled with the way it has turned out so let’s hope Harrison is too!

Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge -  Always Anything Goes (Cards only
