Addicted To Stamps Challenge #87

Hi Crafters,
Hope your weekend has gone well.
This card was made for my daughter's Fiancé for his birthday. As with all young people nowadays they are never very far away from their phones :/, so this image from Mo Manning seemed rather appropriate.

Image - Paul Texting by Mo Manning
Papers - Echo Park 'That's My Boy'
Xcut Star Die
I came across these papers in my box of 6 x 6 pads and thought this fitted perfectly, he also likes his games too. I added a little bit of faux stitching on the stars and job done :)
