Skateboard birthday card

Another 13th birthday card!! My son's girlfriend asked me to make a card for her brother. I have been spending some time trying to work on better photographs too. 

I have used a white 8x8in card and covered it with patterned paper from a Paper Stack. I have used card from my stash to mount my Hobby House topper and to stick a panel down my card. I die the 13 with Marianne dies in two colours and offset them when I stuck them down. I printed the personalised sentiment and die cut it with a Go Kreate die and die cut the the next size up in the set to layer. I used a punch to make stars and completed my card with the stars and some thread.
