Happy birthday teenager....

Hello folks!  I made this card for my nephew Nicolas who celebrated his 16th birthday today.  I used Craft Artist (Planet Pop kit) to create the photo panel and reached for Sam Poole's funky Urban Beats stamp set for the images.
I love the way this solid stamp came out when I stamped and embossed it on the blacked ribbed card.  I added some fine glitter on and around the image.

I used white chalkies on this stamp.  The sentiment is also from the Urban Beat stamp set.  A few gems here and there with a piece of green webbing and the card was finished. 
The card made Nicolas smile.... but he seemed to like his gift (folded inside) a lot more ;o)
Ciao for now!
