Birthday Boy

Hello everyone,

The son of one of my best friends is turning one today. He likes things he can chase, books and things with wheels. I used this week's Eat, Sleep, Stamp sketch as a starting point and though I really took some liberties with the sketch, I am really pleased with the final card.

The background paper is Stampin' Up Old Olive. The orange strip is Stampin' Up Only Orange which was textured with Cuttlebug's Happy Birthday embossing folder. The stickers are felties from Sassafras. The personalization was cut with Provo Craft Olivia by Wordsworth letters in Stampin' Up Real Red. The sentiment is Stampin' Up It's Your Birthday.

I think this is a great little boy's birthday card. I drew the colours for the card from the felties because I needed the focus. As Xavier will only be one, I can't wait to see his parents' faces because I know they'll love this card.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
