It's the big 21!

Hi friends,
21 years ago today, a 10 pound turkey was born! My oldest turns 21 today...
I made him this "simple" card:
 I took the stamp and colored in sections I wanted to emphasize, cut them out, & popped them up on top of the stamped image.
Here's a closer peek:

Here's a peek of the innies:

 I die cut the 21 from the white paper so you're seeing the negative space on the inside.

I thought I would make a "simple" card, but this took longer than if I had colored an image with Copics! Ack! Now, if you have this stamp (from Tim Holtz) you're probably wondering why it looks different...well that's because I omitted a couple of parts---> "Be Fearless" and "Take Risks". While I liked the rest of the message, my son doesn't need encouragement in the areas of taking risks and being fearless, let me tell ya! I have lots of emergency room visits in the old memory bank having to do with him being fearless & taking risks and believing the philosophy of doing your own stunts! Lol *Ü*

Well, I hope he likes it.  That's it for today...gotta run to a birthday dinner.
