My Son's Birthday

My baby boy is no longer a baby, but as any mother can tell you, he will always be my baby.  :)  Until he gives me grandchildren, but we have several years before that happens.  His 15th birthday was last month and all he wanted was a quiet weekend at home, money and a cake.  :)  You just have to love teenagers.

He loves music, so I pulled out some paper with sheet music on it, and distressed/tore/folded the edges to give it a worn look.  I layered it on a dark piece of cardstock and then used a Very Vanilla base.  Michael loved the little bronze paper clips.   To add even more texture to the card I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of Linen Ribbon, then inked it to age it.

Stamps: Boy Basics Game On (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: Tea Die, Antique Linen (Distress); Chocolate Chip (SU)
Paper: Early Espresso, Very Vanilla, Epic Day DSP, Modern Medley DSP (SU); Black Sparkly Paper (???)
Accessories: Banners Framelits, Distress Tool, Mini Library Clips, Natural Cotton Ribbon (SU); Flourish Die Cut (Cricut)
