Fun at 30!

Hi Folks
Hope everyone is well and not too stuffed full of yummy easter eggs yet! This is a card for my brother Ryan who turns the big three O at the end of April, gosh I'm organised for once! It's a big 8x8 card, which I usually struggle with but managed to fill it quite well. Just love this image, he's looks like he's having loadsa fun! I've used the 'Clear Rock Candy' Distress Stickles again, it looks like sugar on the bagel, you really must get some!
I'm also entering it into a couple of challenges of course!

Happy Easter Kelly, this is gorgeous, fab image, love it.
You could pop this is Simon Says Stamp too hunny theirs is "distressing" wink wink lol.
As for my boy coming home for tea, not when I cook he won't, the kids beg hubby to cook the tea, lets just say I like to make sure it's all very well cooked to the point of crunchy lol
