Birthday card for son

My youngest child (as he would say, not so young any more) is having a birthday soon and I made this card for him. He is the free spirit I always wished I was but never had the courage to be.

The reading boy is from the Cricut cartridge A Child's Year. I put it on white cardstock and ran it thru the Cuttlebug using a SU embossing folder. The sentiment is computer generated on a shape from the Cuttlebug Cut and Emboss set Fanciful Labels. I printed it on paper, wiggled and jiggled it until I got it in the right spot on the cut/emboss sheet, ran it through the Cuttlebug and then used SU real red ink on a dauber to highlight the embossed areas. I also cut one of the strips in black and cut it in the middle, then positioned it to shadow only on the ends and pop dotted.

On the inside, the sentiment is computer generated and the books are an old, old sticker. I had put something personal on it before I thought to take a picture so that personal part is blocked out.
