Happy Birthday Jake!

Hello Delightful Friends and Family!
Today is our oldest grandchild's birthday!  Jakob turns seven today and here is the card I made for him.  He started taking Jiu Jitsu lessons in the fall and has been doing great.  A couple of weeks ago he earned his yellow belt so when I saw this LaLa Land Craft stamp I had to get it for his birthday card.  The name of the stamp is Karate Luka but we won't tell Jake!
 I've colored Luka with Copic markers and the paper I've used is from the Taylored Expressions Key Ingredient Kit for February (WeR Memory Keepers 6x6 pad Hip Hip Hooray and the HB sentiment is from the stamp of the month Birthday Bash) I've used the following inks: Memento (tuxedo black, nautical blue) Distress Inks (antique linen, peacock feathers, mustard seed); Spellbinders Nestabilities Classic Circle Die.
 More pictures to come after his party...

Inside of the card (stamps: MFT & Hero Arts)

I'll be entering this card in the following challenges:

Thanks for visiting!! Have a fantastic weekend!

Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess.  Hebrews 4:14
