The art canvas was sponged with Distressed Oxide inks before stamping the sentiment and flowers. Background paper is Blanc Boutique from The Paper Studio.

Birthday card for my grandson who is turning 14 and loves video games (what kid doesn’t 🙂 ). The video controls die is from My Favorite Things. Happy Birthday die is from Elizabeth Craft Designs. The pull tab is a die from Technique Tuesday. The sentiment on the pull tab is also from Technique Tuesday and is called Love Borders. This is a corresponding stamp for the pull tab die. You put a little surprise behind the card layer before adhering it to the card base and then the recipient pulls the tab to find the surprise.
