Happy 10th Birthday to my big boy!

I now have a child in double-digits! Ryan turns TEN today! It's so hard to believe.  Of course, I had to make a special card for him... boyish, not TOO juvenile, but still fun and cute!  YES, he is NOT too old for CUTE!  Hmmph!  :)  So I inked up PTI's Fly Away (which I've had for a while, but had yet to use!) and combined it with Up Up and Away (still totally a favorite set, between the clouds, the balloons and the rainbow, there are soooooo many uses for it!) to come up with this cutie for my cutie:



The plane and the balloons are colored with Copics, and I popped up two of the clouds and one of the balloons for added dimension and depth. I also ran the clouds through the Sunshine impression plate for that added bit of pizazz.

Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday to Ryan! You made him a great card. Time flies, doesn't it? My eldest one turned 10 a month ago. Have a wonderful day!

What a great card, Debbie. I love all the little touches - the pale aqua outlining and the impressed clouds add so much. Hope Ryan's birthday is his happiest one yet!

That impression plate has been on my wishlist. Love how you use it on the clouds. Great card! My baby turned 10 last month. I did not handle it well, but I told him he'll always be my baby. Happy birthday to your little (well, not so much anymore) guy!
