Doin' it Old Skool

I made this card today to take a break and to stop me from going mad whilst cleaning. I am getting there but I tell you what I can't go through this again. It's way too tiring cleaning up the mess I have got myself into. I was going to take a photo of my craft area and post it on my blog but I didn't want to scare my blogging friends.

I live in my jeans and have to admit text all the time, I guess I am just a product of the modern age. I got the idea of making this card the other day when I found my phone in my back jeans pocket, not exactly the best place to keep my phone but the good thing is it did inspire me to make this card, its funny the things that give us creative inspiration.  I found the jeans pocket picture on the internet and added the rub on and heart sticker for decoration. I added the jeans pocket tab later on as I wanted to add the phrase "old skool" somewhere on my card without making it too obvious.  I found the mobile phone image on the internet as well, I added the text of "Happy Birthday" onto the screen. I have added dimensional magic onto the screen and buttons of  the phone to make the phone look more life like. The sentiment has been done in a font that resembles phone text.

I have atlast found a  quick card design that can be adapted for both and female, atlast I can start giving my male freiends handmade cards.
