Sweet Sixteen

Talking about time flying, my second card today was made for my eldest son's 16th Birthday, surely it was only yesterday that we brought him home from the hospital, lol! As the boys have got older, it has become increasingly difficult to make them relevant cards, so I thought I'd have a problem with this one as my son is not into music, sports or anything else nice and easy to make into a card! He does love, however, sitting on his bed with his x-box on, his phone bleeping every 5 minutes, typing on facebook, so it was with delight that I discovered this Mo Manning stamp and the fact that I could download it as a digi stamp made it even better as I was running out of time! I do think I made the image a bit big so there's not a lot of room for much else on the card, on the other hand I find embellishments for boys a problem (can't add lots of butterflies and flowers or glitter!) , so it's probably for the best!
