21st Drummer Boy

Good Evening,
I am feeling really happy as I've been to see my Nurse Specialist this afternoon. She checked my wounds and has said that I do not need to go to the practise nurse/district nurse daily any more as my wound has just about healed, HOORAY!!!!!!!!!!!!. I've been up and down to have the dressing changed for about 4 weeks now, I'm just wondering what I'll find to do with my extra time at home.
I thought I would share a card with you today that I was asked to make. The brief was a 21st Birthday card for someone called Sam who loves to play the drums 

I think I covered everything, do you?
The numbers were cut out on the silhouette using dotty paper from my scrap box (can't remember where it's from). The image was sourced from the internet & was taken over to Photoshop where I typed in the sentiment to the drum front. The white embossed backing paper was created using a mask & matted onto the same blue paper that the edge of the numbers were cut from.

  1. Great card Carole and perfect by the sounds of it!

  2. Ooh this is gorgeous Carole! what a fab image and you've coloured it beautifully. I love the design with the big 21 and the embossing is perfect… it's a wonderful design!
    I'm so pleased that your wounds have healed and no more back and forth to the nurse… that must have been tiring!! Hope you can have a nice rest now and enjoy your crafting! :-))
    Take Care
    Big hugs
