18! Big Birthday Wishes

A big card for a big birthday! In Alberta, 18 means your "of age." You can vote, smoke, drink or join the military, if you're of a mind to do any of the above. So my former co-worker wanted something special for her son's bday.


I laugh when I see this card because my former coworker couldn't stop gushing about how "pretty" it was. I said that it had better not be pretty... I'd worked so hard to get it looking grungy! Any mistakes I made, I made work. I did forget to pull out my Grunge Me set which I had been quite excited to do... This is what happens when I'm in too big of a hurry.

Since I wasn't completely thrilled with this card, I redid it.


Guess it'll be a really big birthday!

Anyone notice my watermarks? lol! On the first pic it says glimmercraft.blospot.com... Whoops! On the second pic, it says glimmermist.blogspot.com... Sheesh!
