Happy 13th Birthday

0 7 Comments

I needed a card for my son’s birthday so I purchased a digi image from Bugaboo Stamps called Video Game Guy

After I had coloured the digi image in with promarkers I then needed to find matching papers.
I hadn’t quite finished clearing away some papers from Pollyanna Pickering Family Portraits Dogs dvd-rom and noticed that some of the papers were a perfect match for the digi image.

Made for a boys 13th birthday

Here is a tutorial on how I created this card.

You will need :
