Evening everybody!! I've eventually made a birthday card for Peter's cousin's son, Nathan. His birthday really is on Christmas Day though I forget how old he'll be - three or four I'm sure! So for him, I didn't want a card that was too babyish! I know he loves his cars, planes and trains etc!! My original attempt at this card involved a rocket, a pop up card and a different image - until Peter's remarks put me right off the idea!! Won't go into the details now but it sure did amuse my forum buddies!! Anyway, I copped out and went for the "safe" option of a more traditionally shaped card LOL!
I'm fairly pleased with the final result and will be entering five challenges with it:
Dotties World - Boy oh Boy!
Crazy 4 Challenges - Punch Happy
PaperPlay Challenges - Christmas without Red or Green
I wanted something fairly seasonal but not overly traditional and screaming of Christmas so thought blue was a good choice. I love the music script on the darker paper and the snowflakes on the panels!! The image I thought fitted the bill perfectly, even for the time of year!!
I really wanted to use buttons on this but Peter really felt they wasn't working (don't know why I'm still listening to what HE thinks LOL!). So I went with Ethan's opinion - he liked the flowers!!!
