Happy Birthday To You

I made this card for my great-nephew's birthday and am entering it into the The Male Room 'Anything Goes' and Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenges.

Card blank: 7” x 7” white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Walk the Plank' pre-coloured topper
Stamp: Hobby Art ‘General Greetings’
Die: Creative Dies ‘Nesting Stars’, Memory Box ‘Classic Numbers’
Ink: Versafine Majestic Blue
Card: Red and blue matt
Paper: Blue patterned

I layered the pre-coloured topper onto red card, this was then layered onto blue patterned paper and red card before being attached to the card front.  I stamped the sentiment, trimmed it to size, layered it onto red card and attached it to the bottom of the card.   The number '8' was die-cut from blue card, layered onto a die-cut red star before being attached to the card front.

This is a fun topper I can just imagine a young boy thinking it would be a great idea to make his dog walk the plank. Adding the star with the age was a fantastic idea, lovely card.
