8 IS GREAT!!!!

Kate, if you are reading this avert your eyes...  I mean it!!!  My nephew is turning 8 this weekend, and thought I would mail him a card to celebrate his day!  I made this card completely out of scrap paper!  The base was cut from a 6x12 I had leftover, and cut this shape from I believe it was Gysy Wanderings Tags feature.  I loved how the shape, once folded looked like a file folder with the tab sticking out?  The Ice Cream cone is from Indie Art layered, and I used my clear embossing powder to give the ice cream a little sheen.  Still perfecting this technique... so I think it's alright!  The arrow is also a little hidden goodie in the Gypsy Wanderings feature buttons.  I cut the layers and embosses the yellow and white layer with my cuttlebug and then inked the raised part with some green ink to make it "pop" a bit more!  The 8 in the circle is cut from Designer's Calendar.  The stars are also from Gypsy Wanderings...  I couldn't get away from that cartridge could I?  A lof of doodling and inking and some black puffy stickers from my stash! 
I hope he likes it!

Happy Birthday Jake!  Love you!
