2012 Birthday for Son, David!

YAY!  I'M SO EXCITED!!!!!My birthday card for son, David, was chosen as a SPLITCOASTSTAMPERS FAVORITE OF THE WEEK for theWEED ENDING JULY 15, 2012

David loves to go to the movies. . .it's almost like a hobby to keep up on the very latest releases.  He even likes to go to the midnight sneak previews!  Also, his favorite snack is popcorn and his favorite drink is Coke Zero, so of course, they are a must whenever he goes to the movies.  

I found a stamp/ die set from My Favorite Things that depicts those things. . .movies and popcorn. . .so I had to buy it to make David's card.  But, they did not have a drink cup, so I came up with a great idea to find a Coke Zero colored image and size and cut it out to use on my card.  I was pretty pleased with myself.  Then, I even found popcorn paper at Joann's in their open stock scrapbooking papers.  The popped corn kernels were gigantic, so I decided to photo scan the paper and drop it into WORD so I could reduce the image size. . .that worked pretty well and I was much happier with my corn kernel size!  Here is how the card turned out. . .I was very happy with it and I know David will get a chuckle out of it.
