Happy Birthday Ben!!

Today my younger son turns 5yrs old!  I can't believe he is getting so big - how time flies!!!  I was wondering what sort of card to make him and decided on --- the JustRite Stampers Challenge to make a Kids themed project (there is a Spellbinders prize up for grabs this week!!!); 2 Sketches 4 You challenge to use their sketch and Our Creative Corner's challenge to make a masculine birthday card!!

I started with a base of green bazzill and layered with Chocolate Chip, White and then some Jungle Bug DSP by Kaisercraft (I looooooove this paper for boys!!!).  The next panel is more green topped with some orange paper from the Jungle Bug and attached some brown grosgrain ribbon through the middle.  I stamped the lion and border from JustRite's new Let's Celebrate set in Memento Rich Cocoa on X-press It Blending Card and coloured with Copics (Y31, YR23, YR24, YR00, YR02) and added some sparkle with a Gold Spica to both the lion mane and the stars in the corners of the border.  I popped the lion panel up on foam tape and finished by adding some white chipboard letters to spell out his name.  :)

Stamps - Let's Celebrate (JustRite)
Paper - X-press It Blending Card, Green Bazzill, Chocolate Chip, White, Kaisercraft Jungle Bug DSP
Ink - Memento Rich Cocoa
Accessories - Copics, Spica Pen, Large Square and Large Scallop Square Nestabilities, Brown Grosgrain Ribbon, White Chipboard Letters, Foam Tape.

That's all for now, thanks for visiting!!!  :)
