Gingersnap Creations and Our Creative Corner Challenges entry

It's me again. This time I am sharing a card I made for my nephew's 18th birthday. I decided to use the Gingersnap Creations "read" and "pencils" challenges and the Our Creative Corner masculine birthday challenge. Links to these challenges can be found at the end of this entry.
I started with a green card and attached two pieces of designer paper(Prima - Pulse Collection) at odd angles across the card as shown. I then cut off the edges that were hanging off the card. I then stamped the notebook paper(Clear Dollar Stamps) with black ink on white cardstock and cut out. I then used a regular pencil to write various notes on the paper and erased some to look authentic. I attached the note page onto the card with pop up adhesive dots. Next, I wrote "HBD"(happy birthday) in graffiti slang. I cut it in an irregular shape and matted onto more of the DP and attached flat to the card. I then cut two embellishments from more DP from the Prima collection with dies from Spellbinders(used my Wizard to die cut them). I attached them with dimensional adhesive as shown. The last thing I did was distress all the edges with black ink.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great rest of the week.
