A superstar's birthday

I made this card for my nephew Dennis, whose birthday was on May 10th. Dennis is a superstar in SO many ways, and I love to tell him so! A quick google search told me that Dennis shares his day of birth with some really amazing people. There's this guy named Paul Hewson, better known to the world as BONO! Also, Fred Astaire was born on May 10 and so was Sid Viscious!! What an eclectic bunch of talented people!

The BG paper is from my stash. The stars are Grungeboard, which I inked with distress ink. The biggest one is also embossed with some glittery EP. I don't get to make cards for boys very often, so I hope Dennis doesn't think the hemp bow is too girly. I needed an accent but wanted to keep it a bit rugged, you know?

I hope everyone is FINALLY getting some sunshine...we sure have needed it here in Binghamton. And for those of you in the Southwestern United're in my thoughts...hoping everyone is safe and sound...

I just linked to your blog and noticed you've been posting here again! I thought you were only doing it on FB, so I haven't visited very often.
Dennis loved his card and the bow too!

The card is beautiful, and I don't think it is too girly at all. I love the way you worked the rugged texture into the piece with just a hint of sparkle. I think the twine bow was an excellent touch.
