Abracadabra ... it's your Birthday!

Hi there!

Well, today I have a card to show you which I made for my son's birthday which is today.  Jacob turns 6 and I just adore these LOTV boy images ... absolutely perfect for little boys birthdays!!

The image is coloured with copies and the papers are Echo Park 'Little Boy'.  I followed the sketch for this card over on Papertake Weekly this weekly.  I added the metal charm on the twine - it's hard to see but it says celebrate.  The metal star is from my stash and the little blue stars are a punch which I then covered in Stickles.  I wanted them placed over the wand so it looks like he's creating sparks with his magic spells!  LOL  The bottom red panel is embossed with a new embossing folder ... loving these big flat polka dots!!  I used a nesties label die cut (4 I think) for the main image panel. 

Here's a picture of the finished inside of the card  I kept it pretty simple but I love the star punched border popping through the red panel.  The sentiment is a cheap Studio G find from Michaels.

Some challenges I'm entering this card into:-

Papertake Weekly - sketch
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Anything Goes
Crafty Purple Frog - Birthdays
Crafts and Me Challenges - Add a Charm
Crafty Creations Challenges - Dies n Punches
Cute Card Thursday - A Pinch and a Punch

Can't stop and chat too much today as we have a fun-filled day ahead for Jacob.  It's looking like it's going to be a gorgeous day (they're calling for 29oc) so we'll be heading into the pool after a birthday lunch out with friends!  And his Daddy arrives on the plane tonight for the long weekend and beginning of school - yay!

I hope you all enjoy this wonderful Labour Day weekend and that the sun keeps shining for you wherever you may be.  Thanks for stopping in - your visit truly is always much appreciated!
