Late Notice (2nd installment)

As I mentioned last post, my son (master 9) also came home with a rather late notice of an impending birthday party and I had 2 days (plus all the other stuff that Mum's do) to put something together. I went to the remnants of another Simply Scrappin Kit - Round Up - that I aquired and decided to see what I could do with that. Here's the result....btw...the birthday boy was turning 10!!

I was really pleased with how it turned out, given the amount of time I had to put it together. I also got to get the crimper out and have a play with it. I crimped the strip that the sentiment is on and also crimped the stars. this card only has 1 STAMP on it which is the 'happy birthday" from the SAB Happy moments set.

I also distressed the edges with the cutter kit to 'bloke' it up a bit more. Amazing what you come up with when put under pressure!!

Stuff used:
CS: (SU) Close to Cocoa, Sage Shadow, Simply Scrappin' Kit - "Round up"
Ink: (SU) Close to Cocoa
Stamp: (SU) Happy Moments (SAB '10)
Punches: (SU) Large and Small Star Punch

What is it with kids and forgetting to tell us about important dates?
Luckily you have 'got it' and can just whip up some fantabulous cards quickly.
I am scared of boys cards, but you seemed to have nailed this.
