Birthday Card for my Son

Hello everyone,

I would like to show off the birthday card I made for my son:

I made a pool table card. :)

I painted the medium size beads to mimic the colors of billiard balls.

I used some green felt, cut out the pool table frame from cardstock and covered it with ultra thick embossing enamel to get that shiny look, and I did that with Q-sticks too.

I think my son will have a kick out of this one :)

I would like to enter this card into following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge "You've got the Edge"

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes"

The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge "Boys to Men"

I hope you enjoyed this post...
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by...
