A 'Bummer' birthday card

Came across this rubber stamp set in a Art Impressions catalog and decided to use the stamp: Bummer Set to create a cute birthday card for my son ....


Front of the Card


Inside of the card

Colored the images using Stampin! UP ink markers and Wink of Stella glitter pen.  Card stock from my personal stash.  The inside image I used a spring set from Close to My Heart.

My son has already received this card, and thought it is cute - gave him chuckle .

Thank you for stopping by to visit with me today, and happy crafting and drive safely this Memorial Day weekend.
