A Special Guy ...

I won this handsome chap in some blog candy and I love it, I hope you do too.  This is a first for me as I have used my new Prisma Colors, I am rather pleased with the result but I certainly have a long way to go yet!!!  My little baby boy turned nineteen recently and this is the card I made him.  The tag was made using an old clothes label of his as a template and the old chord.  The flowers were made using his old FT!
As you can see it is a DL easel card another first as I am rather set in my ways and like using square ones most of the time!
Anyways onto the recipe,  black/purple cardstock from stash, buttons and  hand stitched.  Boutique ribbon from the Papermania Capsule Collection, flowers die cut again from the Sizzix 3d flower die, Martha Stewart branch punch.  'Live out Loud' sentiment is from Elusive Images (not sure where you can purchase this now)! 'A Special Guy' sentiement from The Greetings Farm.  'SON' punched using a Quickutz alphabet, finally the square black gems are from Papermania Mosaics; Onyx & Diamond range.
Hope you like it, take care, happy crafting
