Have I got your attention now?  Good!

Just a quick short post to show a birthday card I
made recently for a little boy.

I used the 'Toy Soldier' Sizzix Bigz die from the
Tim Holtz/Alterations range.
I cut the pieces from felt and distressed it slightly 
with distress inks.

The background is cut from a roll of wrapping paper,
mounted onto a piece of card and distressed with
some white acrylic paint.
The black border is just a black felt tip edging.

I must admit when I saw this wrapping paper
a couple of years ago now, 
I bought it with the sole intention of using it with this die -
and hey I did!  Better late than never :)

OK, you can stand easy now ....
and thanks for looking of course!

Bet the birthday boy loved it, Sherry. Very smart to use the wrapping paper for a background.

Sorry, I'm obviously really behind!
This is a fabulous card - I love how you have distressed the wrapping paper to create the background. J
