Birthday Wishes

I made this card using the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #21. The paper is from Basic Grey's cupcake paper pad. I matted all of the layers onto Pure Poppy cardstock and used that as the card base as well. The main image and sentiment is from Everyday Button Bits and is stamped in Pure Poppy and Aegean Blue Versamagic ink respectively. I colored it with Copic markers and traced over it with a clear Stardust pen. I cut the main image with a rectangle nestie and then matted it and cut it just a little bigger than the main image so I could wrap the blue cording around it. The wheels were cut with a circle punch, I added brads to the center and adhered them with pop dots to make them stand out. So, what do you think? Do you think this is a good card to send my nephew who is turning 12 for his birthday?

Thanks for stopping by. Have a blessed day!

Supplies-
Stamps- Everyday Button Bits (PTI)
Paper-Pure Poppy, Vintage Cream (PTI), cupcake (Basic Grey)
Ink-Pure Poppy, Aegean Blue Versamagic
Other- rectangle nestie, blue jewelry cord, red mini brads, circle punch, clear Stardust pen
