Take it easy - it's your 13th birthday!

It's hard to believe that my niece's eldest will be 13 in a couple of weeks - where does the time go?  He's a very laid back young man, so I thought this LOTV pre-coloured topper would be perfect for his card.   I'm entering this into the current Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper challenge.

Card blank: 7" x 7" kraft 
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Lazy Afternoon' pre-coloured topper
Card: Dark brown 
Colouring: Promarker
Paper: Hot off the Press Ultimate Pack (floral)
Other: Computer generated sentiment (Cooper Black font)

I layered a square of green paper onto brown card and attached it to the card front.   A strip of co-ordinating paper was layered onto brown card and attached to the left side of the card.   The pre-coloured topper was layered onto brown card and attached to the card front with foam tape (as I had only got white tape I ran a dark brown Promarker around the outer edge so the tape blended into the card).   I used Cooper Black font for the sentiment and printed it in a dark brown, this was layered onto brown card and attached to the card front.  Quick and easy!
