Birthday card for my Son

Now this card was fun to make. I started by writing the words in a graffiti style, just cause I love playing with letters, I became addicted after watching a you tube clip by Ellen Vargo and it was something to do while I was at the local church hall waiting to donate blood (takes halo off for a quick polish). But then I didn't have a clue what to do with it! I rummaged through my papers for inspiration and found a background I liked. I made it using my home made gelly plate (thanks to the Frugal Crafter). I thought a wall stencil would be fab to make the background into a wall for the graffiti and it worked brill. But it needed something else and that's when I saw the post from Visible Images for their latest challenge and it reminded me of the set I had with the barbed wire and 'immortal' sentiment which were perfect. A few cheeky words around the edges and voilà!
