a card for Alex. . . .

my grandson, who lives in Parker CO, and will be 16 later this month!!  It is definitely a milestone birthday for him.  I know he is excited to be driving and hope he will be cautious and safe while doing so.  (scary thing to me!)



Since there are lots of numbers on this card, I am also entering this in the challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show.  The patterned paper and numbers are from Tim Holtz.  Sentiments are from Hero Arts, a bit of glitter pen was added to some of the letters.  A background stamp from Impression Obsession was also used, along with a couple of others.  I had these little copper letters in my stash and thought they added just enough to the card. 

Thanks for visiting.
