Birthday boy

Hey, hey! How are you doing? I hope everything is fine with you. Can you believe January it's nearly over? Goodness, this month just flew by. I'm getting more and more excited about my baby coming to this world soon. Can't wait to hold my little princess in my arms. Just a little bit longer ...

Anyways, I'm here today to share with you a card that I made for my hubby's nephew who celebrated his 2nd birthday in December. I'm always struggling with man/boy cards, but when I saw the Birthday boy stamp from The Greeting Farm I knew immediately what I want to make and I realised that making boy cards isn't THAT scary after all. ;)

For this card I used papers from Authentique and from my stash. As it was a boy's card I didn't want to add flowers or butterflies or other girly embellishments, so I used some die cut stars, buttons, ribbon and paperclips to embellish the card. I also used some chat clouds from Pinkpaislee. In the middle of one of them I stamped a sentiment which is in slovenian and means "sincere congratulations". 

The circle behind the image was embossed with Cuttlebug's Swiss dots embossing folder. I coloured the image with Promarkers and Giotto and Faber Castell pencils.

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. Have a wonderful day! Hugs! xx
