Happy Birthday to my Wonderful Son!

My son's 28th Birthday is today! He lives in Southern Florida and he does own a surf board. And he surfs. So I thought Surf Edwin from the Lazy Summer Days was the perfect image for his card.

The background was embossed with Koi fish then I used a little distress ink to give it color and dimension. The fence was colored with Creme de Chocolate and Creme de Cocoa Glimmer mist. The sand effect was created with Copic markers. I colored Edwin with Copic markers E0000, E00, E11, E25, E31, E50, G21, G40, B21, B24, B32, B000, B01, and R20. I used liquid glass for the design on the surf board. I stamped, colored and cut out the starfish and pop with pop dot. I distressed the birthday tag and added some rope.

Enjoy your evening and thanks for stopping by!
