My nephew, Alex turned 8 last Friday.  He is a total Minecraft junkie! 
So I thought it only appropriate to make him a Minecraft card for his birthday. 
I chose various shades of green, for this character (Who's name escapes me at the moment!). His "face" was done in black and glossy accents was added. I used dimensional foam circles to adhere them for added depth. I had asked my son if this "character" came with any accessories.  I was all stoked to add a Shrinky Dink charm to my black twine.  I was told under no uncertain terms that this character had NO accessories. 
So I added my sentiment across the bottom.....and snuck in a few rhinestones.
Much better.
And just in case you wanted to see the birthday he is. (Although I'm cheating because he was only 7 in this picture!) HA!
There is just a little family resemblance huh? ;)
And I am off to start my day.....
Lots on the "to-do" list.....
Have a fantastic day my friends!!
Thank you for making me a part of your day!
