Hello!  What a week this is turning out to be.  Yesterday I managed to lock myself and the kids out of the house.  We spent 2 hours in the back yard until hubby got home.  Luckily he has a key to one of the doors that worked (we didn't think it went to the house).  The key he picked up from the rental company didn't go to any of the doors.  Yikes.

Anyway, my nephew has a birthday coming up on the 4th, so I thought I'd share the card I made for him.

The image is Toby n Buster Birthday from Doodle Dragon Studio.  I colored the image with Bic Markits.  For the background paper I embossed a piece of blue cardstock and used a white ink pad to help make the circles pop a little.  I did the same with the red cs piece.  The sentiment is from K. Andrew Designs.  On the inside I stamped Happy Birthday.

Love the embossing on the background pieces. The white over top really makes the raised parts pop. Cute image and great use of white matting for contrast. Thanks for joining us for our Red, White & Blue challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I look forward to seeing you again soon.
