Birthday card for Max

Good afternoon!!

Just a quick post as we are hurrying now to get ready to go out to our friends house to celebrate the 6th Birthday of their son, Max - lucky boy as he always gets fireworks at his birthday party!!  (for anyone reading outside of the UK - November the 5th is Bonfire Night here - celebrating the failure of the gunpowder plot to blow up the king and parliment way back in 1605)

I've made this card for him... Max that is... not Guy Fawkes :-)

It was meant to be a quick card, but I got a bit carried away and have decorated the inside as well!

The left hand side is open at the top as he wants a Nintendo and has asked for money, so it's a little pouch for me to pop a note in

Stamps - Football Jack, Sentimental Numbers, both Ladybug Crafts Ink
Kraft and Orange CS; Brilliant "A Boy Is", and "Brothers" My Mind's Eye, from Scrapbook Sisters
MS Border Punch; Orange Brads, Buttons and Ribbon; Football die cut from my lovely friend Julie

I'd like to enter this for these challenges

Creative Card Crew - Punch It ( hope the die cut and the punch on the inside count!)

Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend

Its just gorgeous Sue and perfect for a 6 year old. My brother's birthday is the same date but in NI we weren't allowed fireworks for many years lol!
Had to settle for the fizzle of sparklers lol.
