A card for a 12 year old

I was asked by a colleague if I could make a card for her son who will be 12 on Valentines day.
She had been looking in the shops and couldn't find one she liked which had an age on it.
I "borrowed" this idea from Lynn and made the following card.
It's an A5 black card landscape which I covered with Bo Bunny papers which I got last year.
I left a small border around the edge.

The 12 was cut with my Cricut using the Teardrop font with another of the Bo Bunny papers shadowed in black bazzill.

The name was cut using the same font and I chose a piece of the paper which graduated in colour from blue to yellow. These was also shadowed with black and place on a strip of the paper bordered with black.
I added the 12 with 3d foam tape then the banner across the middle raised further.

A few candi were added to finish the card.
Hope she likes it :)
