You're 16!

Our neighbor's son turned 16 this week.  We've known him since he was 3.  He used to love everything there was about mowing.  When he was 4 or 5, he would videotape my husband mowing.  How cute is that!  Then he liked motorcycles for a while, and my husband helped him get his motorcycle running lots of times.  Now he's into computers, and he's helped us get our wireless router going on lots of occasions.  Needless to say, he's pretty special to us.  So, I made this birthday card for him and gave him a gift card to Best Buy.

Here are the details of his card:

Size:  A2
Cardstock:  Bazzill
Patterned Paper:  My Mind's Eye (striped) and unknown (polka dots)
Embossing on card and star:  Cuttlebug
Star:  George Cricut cartridge (cut at 2 1/2")
Border punch:  EKSuccess
Scalloped rectangle:  Nestabilities
16:  Cindy Loo Cricut cartridge (cut at 1 1/4")
Buttons:  Unknown (from my stash)

Thanks for looking and for your comments.
