When I get my inspiration from someone's blog I try to save the card on Pinterest so I can go back and share the link with you, well I can not find anywhere the card that gave me inspiration for this card, so I am thinking it may have came from one of my cardmaking magazines. I have so much trouble with boy preteen cards, my great nephew turned 12 and I thought this might be neat to try. The person stamped the background with little stamps but left the center blank and added the sentiment, I am thinking theirs was an oval I went with square. I cut the Birthday sentiment out of sticky backed foam, with this die set , so I didn't have to worry about having adhesive on it and I like the dimension the foam gives, I also bent it a little bit before sticking down so it had a bit of an arch. Filled in some of the spaces with dots with my fine tip sharpie marker.
