Benji's BD Tag

Morning Everyone! Happy birthday to my Bro today the grand ol' age of 22!! Unfornatley he is off to work today but he says he has already told them he isn't foing anything today as they wouldn't let him have the day off! LOL

Well i got him a pillow with inbuilt speakers so he can hook up his iphone and listen to music without having headphones in and chillax! Bless him he says i always get him the ace presents! At least he is pleased with it! Im not too happy with his hair though i can never get black hair right i just dont like the dark colour LOL if anyone has any tips feel free to share with me! Also this is to enter the Some Odd Girl Guest Call too over on FB how can anyone not pass the opportunity to work some fab images!

So i was lazy too i couldnt be bothered to wrap this huge thing of a pressie so i decided to make a nice tag for him and hang it from the handle and ive gone for a distressed not the norm tag as he is my bro and we dont do norm we like being quirky so ive used pigment ink pad to lightly ink the edges of the elements and staples and a bit of allsorts of course not forgetting my fav embeliie of all buttons and heres' how it turned out:

Kraft Cardstock
MME Lime Twist Paper
Some Odd Girl - All Star Kody Digi and Sentiment Clear Stamp from Balloon Kaylee Set
Dies - Quickutz Star and Spellbinder Circle
A trusty stapler!
Pokey Tool 
Distress Tool
