Birthday For a (New) Teen

I'm finding time for stamping again, and it feels so good!  I got four cards made today - two for future Repeat Impressions posts, and two just because.

This card is for my next-door neighbor who will be turning 13 on Friday.  I can't believe he'll be a teenager already - I babysat for him when he was a newborn!  I used some Basic Gray paper that I got a couple years and never liked very much.  I stamped the large "HAPPY" (from Stampendous) on the paper and cut out the letters.  I stamped it again on white to use on the card and again on a scrap of white to cut out the centers of the two P's and the A.  I matted with a brown cardstock.  The "birthday" is from the same set as the "HAPPY."

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back and visit again soon!

What a wonderful card for a teen. After seeing your card I realized that I do not see many cards for teens. Thanks for sharing this wonderful card Lynette. Stay warm. :)
