HAPPY BIRTHDAY ROBERT

Today is my son's 14th birthday.  I couldn't decide what  kind of card to make for him.  Then I was inspired by two challenges.  Peachy Keene has a sketch with a twist-you have to use twine or embroidery floss.  And Celebrate the Occasion  has a Ribbon challenge.  Although this looks like a simple card I had a lot of problems with adhering the ribbon and floss.  (The soccer background is ribbon) I don't have any twine, so I loosely braided three strands of embroidery floss.
