13th birthday card

Another 13th birthday card for one of my sons friends. I find it difficult to make male cards. I like the Hobbyhouse toppers and they often give me some where to start. The spotty card is by Anna Marie, I  have covered my 8x8in white card with the paper. I have used a tan coloured card from my stash to pickup the colour from the image. I have cut a circle with two dies from a Go Kreate set. I have die the numbers with Marianne dies, I cut them in two colours and off set them when sticking them together . I printed a personalised sentiment and die cut it with a rectangular die from a Tonic Sudios nesting set. I cut the next size in green. I completed the card with three buttons from my stash
