Birthday Boy

I have fallen seriously behind with my blogging and I have a backlog of cards to show. I wanted to post this one as I'm going to take advantage of a challenge that finishes in a few days.
I have made a birthday card for a young boy. He is at that awkward age between teddies and teens and he's not into football. I decided on this lovely digi image from the Joanna Sheen CD Daisy and Friends.


I started with an 8"x 8" card blank. All the backing papers are from the CD and the mats are Kraft card. I wrapped coloured twine around the die-cut panels before fixing to the card. The bunting is cut from another backing paper on the CD and attached with foam pads.


I coloured the image with Promarkers to match the papers and mounted it on foam pads. The sentiment was created on the computer and I finished the card with three small buttons.

I would like to enter this card in:
 Joanna Sheen Challenge "Boys will be Boys"
Creative Crew - Challenge 42 "Banner/Pennant"
