Who's 15?

My son, Austin, that's who!

It's hard for me to believe that it's been fifteen years since I held
my firstborn in my arms for the first time and felt my heart grow bigger!

My son is a huge Doctor Who fan and requested a tardis cake
(well, actually he requested a dalek, but I told him he'd have to settle for a tardis -- LOL!)

Don't look too closely! LOL!
The colour is a little off, but this was a dark as I could get the icing.
And yes, that's paper for the signs.... we'll just peel it off before we eat it. ;)

So, for his card, I decided to continue with the Doctor Who theme....

I printed the tardis off of the internet and then printed it onto 
PTI's stamper's select white card stock.
I die cut it using a new tag die. Isn't it lovely? 
Unfortunately, I can't tell you where it's from yet.... Sorry for being such a tease! ;)

I printed my sentiment onto kraft card stock (using a Doctor Who font)
and then stamped around it using Beautiful Banners and
then die cut it using the coordinating Beautiful Banners Confetti Cuts.
I layered the tag, using dimensional adhesive, over some white card stock that I impressed 
with my PTI Bookprint IP.
The wooden stars are from the Pretty Pink Posh Nature Kit and add the perfect
finishing touch!

I also decided to make a coordinating envelope for this week's
  Make It Monday at Papertrey Ink: Envelope Wraps.

I used my Tag Sale #5 die cut the enchanted evening card stock and then die cut
a Seeing Stars die from the centre.
I stamped the "a" using PTI's Antique Alphabet
and added some more Pretty Pink Posh wooden stars.

So the birthday plans tonight are:
Austin's invited a friend over and we'll have pizza for supper.
Then, we're going to the theatre to see the latest Captain America movie.
Should be a fun evening!

Thanks for looking!

Happy Birthday Austin!! 15 is a good age! The cake looks delicious! I love the colors on the card and the envelope. Your wrap is nice and if you need to address the envelope you could. Great job.
