For a one year old's birthday

Hello lovely blog buddies,

Here is my card for an order - for a little boy's first birthday. It had to be flat as it is going to be sent overseas. Frankly I am not so impressed with with what I have made - it seems a bit too busy to me. The stamp is a clear one from Paper Mania picked up from Hobby Craft in London this summer at a super price. I have coloured it in with my new Prisma pencils and the shiny paper came from Merry all the way from Australia - thank you so much, I love it. The printed paper is fancy gift wrap, the star and baby hippo are from my stash of 3D stickers. The candle which you see in place of the letter I is a sticker from EK Success.

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

A wonderful cheery card. :-) I have just remembered that I rediscovered about 5 paper packs I had done up for the markets last year. When I find my desk again I will send them off to you so I can enjoy seeing what you come up with. :-)
