Happy Birthday Josh

I made this card for my eldest great-nephew for his 15th birthday.  I'm entering Sparkles Monthly Challenge 'Birthday', Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge, Crafty Friends 'Anything Goes' challenge and Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper Challenge.

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Lili of the Valley 'Oliver - Texting' digi
Card: White silk, dark grey matt
Paper: Hot off the Press 'Floral Ultimate Pack'
Other: Computer generated sentiment 'Tempus Sans ITC' font

I trimmed the denim blue paper, layered it onto grey card and attached it to the card front.  I then added a strip of spotty paper across the lower section.  I resized the digi and printed it onto white card before colouring it to match the colours in the paper.  The image was trimmed, layered onto grey card and attached to the left side of the card.  I printed the sentiment, trimmed it, layered it onto grey card and attached it to the right of the image with Pinflair glue.
