You're an All Star

Hi Everyone!

Hope everyone had a super weekend.  Well what a VERY relaxing day we had. It's been quite cold today which is more normal now for this time of year. It did give me time to create more cards and EVEN...are you ready..... a layout! I have never shared one before but will share it next week. I wanted to post a card I made last week for a couple challenges. I just love how this card turned out. I really wanted a vintage looking card so I really inked it up :) I placed a banner on the inside to be used as a pocket to hold a gift card.  You all know I have two boys so this type of card is pretty typical around here. I made this for my son's friends 8th Birthday. The boys really liked the card!
