Oliver Birthday

I'm struggling to find crafting time at the moment, but made this card for a young boy's birthday.  I'm entering Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge, Crafty Friends Challenge 'B is for ...' (I have chosen birthday, boy and blue) and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.


Card blank:  6" x 6" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Lili's Die Cuts Oliver'
Dies: Memory Box 'Grand Happy Birthday' and X-cut 'Mini Star'
Card: Dark blue matt and white silk
Paper: Joy Crafts 'Earth Bloc'

I layered the paper onto blue card and attached it to the card front.  I die cut Happy Birthday from blue and white card.  The blue die cut was attached to the lower edge of the card and the white letters were inlaid.  The precoloured image was already die cut and was attached with foam tape.  To finish I die cut three small stars from blue card and attached them to the upper corner.
