Sweet 16?

My son is turning 16, and seeing as he really liked the Grungy Butterflies card, I decided to make him one with moths and dragonflies....a few studs and tickets and it is just right for him.
The tickets I downloaded from Miss Cutiepie. Then I stamped the different words from a new mixed set of acrylic stamps from Kaiser Crafts with Black Soot Ranger Inks.
 The edge of each layer of paper is distressed, ran through some watermark ink, dipped in gold embossing powder and then heated.  The number 16 is also done the same way!
Something new for this card is the tassles.  It is a braid that I bought in a material shop which I have just stuck to the back of the card and separated the strands.  Gotta keep it boyish...Enjoy!
