All-Star Birthday

I'm still working ahead and trying to get some summer birthdays taken care of before our vacation. This one is for one of my grandsons.  He will be 14.

The background is red gingham.  I dug out my Mini Minc and used some red foil and a gingham toner paper to create the background.  I have more trouble trying to photograph foil.  There always seems to be a dark section.  In real life the bright red on the right side of the card is what it looks like all over.

My grandson has a pair of black high tops very much like these.  I think he will get a kick out of this card and these fun shoes.  

Thanks so much for coming by to look.  I always appreciate your kind comments.

The Recipe:
MFT Be Original - sentiment
MFT All Star High Tops, Sentiment Label Strip dies
Heidi Swapp Mini Minc, Toner Paper, Red Foil

  3. This is so stinkin' cute. LOVE the gingham, and those shoes are to die for. And you FOILED the gingham? Where did you get gingham toner paper?? Super adorable, your grandson will LOVE this!

  4. Oh Sharyn, this is a fantastic card. I love it. The gingham is beautiful foiled and I am in awe of the shoelaces. What a perfect card for a 14 year old boy. You really nailed this!
