Birthday Card for a One Year Old Boy

For this card I've used a rather neglected wood mounted stamp and combited it  with my new basic grey papers for

Mojo Monday - Sketch

Basic Grey - Photo Inspiration

Colour Create Challenge - Colours (Kraft, Blue and White)

Susies Sassy Challenge - Card for a Boy / Option of an Animal

The Pink Elephant -"Birthday"


I love this color combi and the sketch worked brilliantly as the stamp is quite large and I didn't want a fussy layout as its for a boy........yes I know he won't understand as he'll only be a year old, but I'm practicing my card making for the males in my life as there are LOADS in my family and I am determined this year to make a birthday card for EVERYONE in the family this year so all my DT and challenge cards get used up lol!


Stamp - Inca "The Old Rocking Horse"
Papers - Basic Grey
Sentiment - Craftwork Cards
Colouring Mediums - watercolour pencils and copics
Flower - Prima
Ribbon - stash
Card Candy

Thankyou for stopping by, it's now 1.15am and I'm finally cream crackered lol, so nighty night.  Take care
