007 18th birthday

Hi Everyone, my card today is for the Outlawz Sketch Challenge. I had already decided what image I wanted to use, so elongated the sketch to make it fit. I thought as the image looked like 007 I should make it red, white and blue and with the Queen's birthday celebrations this year, thought it all tied in with celebrations. It will make my Great Nephew (who it's for) think of the UK, as they live in Belgium.

It has all been laid out in PS and printed out. The centre strip is a wave, the "buttons" were made in PS with the Union Jack and a PS Action giving it a gold edge and 3D'd and 3D gloss. I folded white card and added silver pen "stitches" to it, to give the impression of  sleeve cuff with cuff links, I also lifted the corner. I told you I think strangely LOL.  I laid the image onto holographic card and cut with a deckle edge scissors. then added the age and sentiment.
