Birthday/Encouragement Card for Grandson #2

Nathaniel is my second grandson. Since he was 7 and was in his first Community Theater production of Winnie the Pooh, he has wanted to become an actor. He is the most determined young man I have ever met. He lived in New York City for 6 years and has now moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams. His birthday was last week, so I made him this combination card, part birthday and part encouragement card.

Card Recipe:

5"X6.5" card base
Background Paper - DCWV Natural Paper Stack
Never Give Up, Film Strip - Cut from Wall Decor Cricut Cartridge
Stars - Cut from A Child's Year Cricut Cartridge
Inside labels - Cut from Storybook Cricut Cartridge
Inked edges in Chestnut Roan Colorbox Chalk Ink

I kept the inside simple to write my message to him on.

Challenges for this card:
Crafty Boots - Anything Goes
Lexi's Creations - "One For the Lads" (Man/Boy)
Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
Paper Playtime -Say It With Sentiments
Simon Says Stamp and Show... - Stars
The Ribbon Reel -Anything Goes
