Happy 22nd Birthday to our Son Steven

Today is a special day as it is our youngest son's 22nd birthday.

Happy birthday Steven.

Here is the card that I have made for him.  I recently won a challenge and the prize was some images from The Paper Shelter.  It's so hard when you win images from designers as there are so many to pick from.  I quickly came across this one and it is called "Workout Time".

This year our son qualified as a Personal Trainer.  Unfortunately he's not been able to get a job working in a gym but fingers crossed it won't be too long before he fulfils his dream.

For my card I used the composition but I also printed out the image of the trainer 5 times so I could put one inside the card and decoupage the image well on the front of the card - well I didn't have to worry about the postage as he still lives with us!!

On the front of the card I used my Tim Holtz Stamping Platform  to stamp the "happy birthday" with one stamp and "son" with another.   I finished off the front by die-cutting out some stars and then running them through a small dots embossing folder.
Here is the inside of the card.  As I said I used one of the images on the inside and stamped "have a wonderful day".

I do love using stamps/digital images and colouring to make cards but I still love doing decoupage.  This combined using a digital image and printing out multiple times to decoupage.

A great card for your son Kym and so beautifully colouresd, many thanks for joining us at Alsorts challenge this week. One of our boys trained for the same and could only get a gym in London but that then took him to Spurs (as Liverpool supporters that was a hard one to bite!!).
