A Card for Daniel

I have made this card for a very special wee boy who turns 13 on the 7th November. Daniel is the son of my DT buddy Claire aka CraftyC´s Crafting Library and as many of you know he is on the Autistic Spectrum suffering from Aspbergers Syndrome. Basically its the inability to socialise or interact socially with others. Do pop over to Claire´s blog and see how you can help make Daniel´s birthday extra special.


He's very much into computers and gaming but loves dinosaurs, robots etc. Spongebob & Pokemon are a firm favourite so I thought this computer 3d easel card from Scrapbookingmad would be perfect for him.
Spongebob is a freebie on the net and the paper is another freebie from Bearly Mine Designs


Challenges:
Cards for Men - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Match Master ... a matching pair
Crafty Sentiments - Male Card/Project
Just Inspirational - Shaped Card
Lots To Do - Easel or Shaped card
Moving Along With The Times - Card for a Child
The Crazy Challenge - Tons of Shapes
