My nephew Josiah is turning 6 next week and this is the birthday card that I came up with for him. My friend and fellow demo, Alyson, sent me this adorable image. Thanks Alybear!!! To color in my image, I again used the Koh-i-noor pencils that I talked about yesterday. Practice makes perfect right? I'm having a fun time testing them out and I must admit, I'm really lovin' them! I used the small oval punch for the little tab, then added a Artichoke brad. The entire image is raised with a dimensional. The pattern paper comes from a TAC collection called Just Like Dad. It contains some wonderful papers for guy cards. The light blue paper is also from that same collection. I just took my sentiment from the Tag Tidbits set, also by TAC, inked it with Palette Noir and stamped the Happy Birthday randomly. The layout comes from an oldie but goodie sketch that I have saved from Marie's blog. My card measures 4.5 x 4.25. Happy Stamping!!
