Video Game Birthday

Hi there! I made this card for my son's 16th birthday. I only realize later that I did not put an actual Happy Birthday sentiment on it, lol! Oh well,  I wrote it in by hand before I gave it to him. This image is from Mo's Digital Pencil. The ticket sentiment is from Raindrop Echo Designs. The papers are from K & Company. I distressed the edges with my edge scraper and embossed the red paper with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Checkerboard embossing folder. I tied some jute string around the yellow paper and tied a star charm onto it. The brads are copper.

The sentiment on the inside is a freebie from Dee's Bugaboo Boutique and is my favorite verse.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
