Happy 24th Birthday to our Son

 This day 24 years ago I gave birth to our eldest son.  It's amazing to think he is now 24  and has been left home 4 years.

Our son is always concerned about his appearance, especially his hair, so I thought this character was a fun image to make a card for him because as time moves on the wrinkles will start to appear!!

I bought this image in an 8x8 card kit by Gillian Hutchinson at CraftsUPrint.  The kit is called "Another Year, another wrinkle".
I cut out all the various items from the kit.  I used various paw and bone stamps to make a background and coloured the bones in with various Promarkers.

When layering together the main topper I thought the dog would benefit from a wobbly head so I folded a piece of acetate into a "M" shape and stuck the last two layers onto the head on the main topper.
Hopefully you can see from this photograph you can see the dog's head at a different angle.  If you gently shake his head he is all wobbles and wrinkles!!

I have finished the card off with some black ribbon, cream ribbon and then I got three plain wooden embellishments, wrote on the letters "S, O and N" onto them and triple embossed  to give a bit of sparkle.

I'm not sure what my son will think about this card but he does have a good sense of humour!!

Happy birthday to our very special son Kevin.  We are so proud of you.
