Happy Birthday Reid

My eldest son Reid is sweet 16 today it doesn't seem five minutes ago I brought him home from hospital a tiny little thing he was not even 7lbs and now he is still as skinny as ever but towers above me at nearly 6 feet tall ...how time flies , Anyway this card I made for his birthday I used the new Magnolia Edwin stamp because Reid is very into cooking and is doing his work experience in the kitchen of the Seahorse/Leoarnds Restaurant in Alverstoke and he is doing GCSE in catering as well ...he is a pretty good Little chef.
I also used papers from DCWV glittered "Kitchen" stack , button is from BG, Brads are Making Memories, ribbon from MayArts, Die cuts from my shop and I punched the 3 small flowers with my SU Triple flower punch. The Edwin image I coloured using Copic markers.
My card is for the following challenges
Creative card crew challenge Recipe Of 2 Paper's , 3 Flowers , 2 Brads , 1 Button & 1 Ribbon.
Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge have a great sketch
