Christophers Birthday Card

Here is the card that I made for Christopher for his 5th birthday. It's so hard to believe that my baby is 5 years old. He'll be going to Kindergarten this fall (sniff) and I know that I'll just cry like a baby when he walks through those school doors.

I used one of Julee's sketches as a starting off point. I believe that this was the Mojo Monday 44 sketch.

The card base is Blue Bayou followed with a Soft Sky layer that was ran through my Cuttlebug. I stamped Big Sprinkle and Lil Party Hat on Shimmery White and colored with a mixture of SU markers and Copic Spica glitter pens (if you click on the image, you may just be able to see some of the shimmer from these pens in action). The image was matted on Wild Wasabi (I'm really going to miss this years In Colors from SU). The '5' is from SU's Big Deal Numbers and is stamped in Blue Bayou.

Thanks for stopping by!
