Teenage birthday card
One of my great nephews is sixteen today and this is the card I sent him.
I used some papers that I haven't used for a long time (mainly because I can never think quite how to use them) - they seemed appropriate for the card I wanted to mak - Artic Frog Sunday Brench . I also used some sentiment paper for the middle panel which was from an Art & Craft Bloc (I bought lots of these years ago and don't think I'd manage to use them up even if I used a piece on every card for the next few years - not sure why I bought so many at the time, but I suppose we all do that at times!).
The new element is a bicycle paper clip, so it clipped niftily behind the panel before being glued down. I bought a pack of these in different colours from Tiger who have recently opened a shop in Bromley - they sell all sorts of things - it's a good place for a look around.
