Tattoo Birthday Wishes

Hi, guys! Hope all is well.  Today I am sharing a 20th birthday card for a young man. I was asked by his mom to make one special for him.  I have known Austin for quite some time as I work with his mom.  He is now 20, and I remember him as a young boy.  It is amazing how fast time goes.

Austin loves tattoos and I thought I would use some sheet metal and some Diamond Plate embossing on it to give it a cool look.

Stamps: Lizzie Anne
Paper: Stampin' Up, Ten Seconds Studio
Ink: Memento Black, Copic Markers
Misc.: Tim Holtz Alterations Diamond Plate Embossing Folder, Spellbinder Heart dies, Oval Punches

I kept some of the papers light in color so it would not look too dark as it is from his mom, after all!

Wishing Austin a very happy birthday!

I am entering this card in the Simon Says Stamp Blog Anything Goes Challenge!

Hope your day is a good one!
