Recycled Birthday

Another quick Birthday card! I've used a Squiggles and Giggles image (bought with my recent win!) called U Rock and coloured it with Promarkers. I've handwritten the sentiment as I didn't have the energy to look for a stamp as I had a really bad headache and needed to get the card finished as it was for an order!

All the papers are from Funky Hand - Funky Daze cd which this must be my most favourite colour collection (Son Day) and the papers are actually all off-cuts from previous makes - there's some clever hiding of gaps underneath the image! I am determined to make my box of bits more manageable but I think I'll have to sort through it as I found some rather small bits of card which I don't know why they were there as not good for much!

The twine was donated by Samuel as he'd been using some for transporting cars and trucks underneath his army aircraft. And fake brads made with a black Sharpie marker and glossy accents.
