Happy Birthday Ethan

Hi everyone, today is Ethan's 10th Birthday. Natalie, a co-worker of mine, is Ethan's mum and describes him as a kind and loving young man. I wasn't at work today but have a card to deliver tomorrow :)

Here is my card -

This is a set by Woodware that I bought whilst in the UK a couple of years ago. It unfortunately hasn't had much use so I thought a pirate theme would be perfect for Ethan.

I stamped the image then created a mask. I used torn paper and distress ink to create my background. I also used a brown glitter pen to give texture to the sand. Once my background was complete I removed the mask from the image and coloured him using polychromo pencils and gamsol. This card came together very quickly!

I hope Ethan likes his card - Happy Birthday, mate :)

I would like to enter my card over at the following challenges -
AAA Cards (see graphic below), Send a Smile 4 Kids (Anything Goes for kids), Lavinia World Challenges (Anything Goes), Lost Coast Designs (For the Men)

Thanks for popping in today :)
