Happy 5th Birthday

My nephew will be celebrating his 5th birthday in May and I needed to make a special card for him. Betsy Veldman made a great card featuring the PTI 2nd anniversary set and I just fell in love with it and knew I needed to make something similar.

It is always a challange for me to make male cards, let alone a childs card. I found this colorful paper by Bo-Bunny Press in my stash and thought this would make a great background for my card. I just started pulling out colors from the paper by using summer sunrise, pure poppy, spring rain and bitty dots in ripe avocado. The stars are from the 2nd anniversary set and sentiment is from birthday basics. I just added some zigzag stitching, ribbon, buttons and jewels to jazz it up alittle.
