Happy Birthday!

Hi everyone!! Happy Friday!!

Here is a card I created for a friend who asked for a 1st Birthday card for a boy!  This was fun to make...I am forever making girlie creations with lots of pink!  There is certainly no pink on this one!

I've used the adorable Pure Innocence Tree Swing for my card, and although I've had this cutie forever, this is the first time he has seen ink.  I stamped the image onto X Press It Blending Card and then cut out the panel, and layer it, with the Oval STAX 1 Die-Namics and Oval STAX 2 Die-Namics.

I colored the image with Copic Markers.  I cut lots of the panels using both the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics and Blueprints 2 Die-Namics, and I used the Blueprints 1 Die-Namics for the circle accent.  I cut it from patterned paper, which is all from Hey Boy from Basic Grey.  I cut the number 1 using the By The Numbers Die-Namics and added it on top.  Before attaching the panel to the card, I added a bow of Hemp Cord.  I added a flag using the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-Namics.

On the inside, I added more patterned paper, and stamped "Happy Birthday" from Pure Innocence Birthday Princess in Orange Fizz ink, and spelled out the name of the Birthday boy in Sour Apple Ink using the Typewriter Alphabet.

Here are the MFT products I've used on my card:
