Day 17 - A Card for my Son

In the midst of all the Christmas shopping and planning and activities, etc., it's very easy to overlook my son's birthday.  Especially this year, as I seem to be working more hours, falling behind by the minute, concentrating on his daughter's Christmas celebration with us, and not least, my son's Army reserves Drill this weekend.
So I find myself a card short, and had to clear off a spot on my craft table to make him a card.  I used a Squigglefly digi image that has a heavy Christmas theme to it, but it doesn't necessarily have to be for Christmas.  The image is called Bauble Box by Diane Carubia
I colored it with my trusty Copics, cut out the image with my Creative memories circle sutting system, framed it with a metallic colored cardstock, and adhered it to some patterned paper from Echo Park.  The paper is double-sided, so I used the other side and cut out a bar of musical notes for an easy embellished border. 
I stamped my sentiment in black ink along the musical notes.  Finally, I added some shimmer with Stickles on the snowflakes, and a little CTMH Liquid Glass on the image.
I know my son will like his card, but I know he will LOVE his birthday present.  He really wants a Blue Ray player, so I found a good deal and got him one.  As far as the movies he wants, well, there's always Christmas a week from now!!

Happy birthday to your son- guess he doesn't read your blog or you wouldn't be posting about his present!
