How about another birthday card?

This one is for a grandson turning 18! I somehow thought these were the images for him. Since he likes anything I do, I am sure he will like this! Nothing like being sure of something.  Officially I am ahead of the game - only one more birthday for October! There are lots of them in Nov and Dec. Actually we have two grandkids born on the same date in Dec. Guess that was bound to happen - there are just so many dates around. I am very partial to Edwin even though I adore Tilda. Hmm. Just thought I forgot the little white dots on Edwin's cheeks. Will have to remedy that one before I actually give the card away. Here are the copics:
YG63, 67; R32, 35, 37, 20; B93, 95, 97, 39; W1,3,5,7; E00, 11, 31, 29, 37. I used Tim Holtz's distress inks for the backgrounds - I actually went over the copics for the grass. I like the way it came out - do you? Hugs to you all, Barb F  I actually only did one photo since everything showed up so well.

So cute Barb! What boy wouldn't like a card with a jeep on it! Actually your Edwin looks so good without the white dots. I stopped putting them on my images a long time ago and I like the look better. It's more natural! Your coloring is really good and those brads are just perfect!
Hugs,
Barb

You don't need the white dots at all. It is a very, very goodlooking Edwin without them. I love the way you have colored him and the car.
I am sure your grandson will love this birthday card.
