Polka Doodles #11: Birthdays

Here we are... my second post of the day. Can you believe it's time for a brand new show and tell over at Polka Doodles! The theme for the next fortnight is "Birthdays". Everybody needs birthday cards and you can't have too many of them.

I made a birthday card for my 8 year old nephew using the marvellous design sheet from Work & Play 8 - Music. This card had to be child-friendly, i.e. no titbits that can be yanked off by curious little fingers. That means no dimensional embellishments. Problem? Not al all. I just filled the card with bits and pieces form the design sheet to create a fun, bright and LOUD card that will appeal to any young man.

The ticket tags are not from the design sheet but is included in the Work & Play 8 - Music CD. There's a fair bit of fussy cutting involved, but I find it quite therapeutic... if done with a good pair of scissors.


Challenges:
Creative Knockouts #80: In Stitches
Cute Card Thursday #364: Celebrate!
Southern Girls Challenge: Boys Boys Boys
Seize The Birthday: Focus On Sentiment / AG Birthdays
Crafty Sentiments Challenge: Birthday
