I made the following card using the sketch from Sketch~N~Scrap for a 7 year old little boy in my Sunday School class who's birthday is today. I gave him the card yesterday and he loved it!
The card base is Recollections A2 Cards. The only difference in my card and the sketch is I didn't add an extra image. I thought the paper was busy enough that it didn't need anything else. I also couldn't find any of my smaller Happy Birthday stamps. The PP is from My Mind's Eye Boy Crazy 6"x 6" Paper Pad- both pieces. I decided to cut the vertical strip like a ribbon to make the card look more masculine. The Happy Happy Happy Happy Birthday stamp is Stampabilities Happy... birthday stamp that I bought at Hobby Lobby and I used VersaFine Black Onyx Fine Pigment Ink pad to stamp it on a piece of typing paper and then put it on a piece of light green Colorbok Deluxe Textured Cardstock Paper and fussy cut it with some decorative scissors. The orange & black enamel dots are from my stash that I boughr from TJ Maxx around Halloween- I can't think of the name of the collection right now.
I added a small journal square to the inside from the same My Mind's Eye Paper Pad. The little boy I made the card for loves to draw and has a great imagination! That's one of the first things I noticed about him when he started coming to my class 2 years ago! I hope you can try to play along with this sketch! The deadline to enter is January 31! TFL!
