For A Very Special Chap

Good morning bloggers, it's a lovely day here so I'm just posting this before I go out as it isn't forecast to last. This card is for our lovely no. 2 GS. He'll be 20 on Friday and I've done all the usual teenage themes so decided to go for something that might surprise him. I've had a play with CAP again to create this. If you've visited before, you may recognise the topper as one I did for my brother's birthday card in May - if you didn't see it the link will take you to it. Having stamped and inked the original up I was really pleased with the result so I photographed it before I used it and couldn't resist a play with it here. I used a bp from the Tempting Turquoise add on kit and then used the lighthouse topper over the top of it to create the main bp for the card. It's more blue in real life the camera has changed it slightly, but I love it. The frame and ribbon are both from the main TT kit and the sentiment was done in CAP. The topper has been cut out and layered up to give some dimension. I like the clean and simple look to this 8x8 card but have to admit that it's CAS because I didn't want to cover up too much of the bp.
I'm entering it into these challenges:
Hope your day is good to you and thank you for dropping by.
