Our nephew Skanda is 16 on Saturday and this is the card that I made for him...it is presently winging it's way to Sydney in the care of my SIL (his aunt) who has been here on holiday. Happy Birthday for Saturday Skanda! I cut an aperture in a white card using the centre point feature on the Expression, and then covered the front of the card with the musical instrument print paper. I cut away the paper covering the aperture with a craft knife. I cut a cog-wheel from silver holographic card and adhered it around the aperture, I cut a smaller cogwheel for the inside of the card which was covered with camouflage paper, and a circle was added to the centre of the cog-wheel along with a '16' cut from a star patterned holographic card.The circle and 16 were adhered with foam pads. I cut 'Happy Birthday' , 'Skanda' & 'You Rock' from copper coloured holographic card and adhered these to the front of the card with foam pads except for the 'You Rock' which was adhered flat inside the card.. I added punched stars for a finishing touch along with candy dots around the cog-wheel.
