Over the Hill

I made this card for my brother-in-law's birthday and am entering the Bugaboo Weekly Challenge 'Anything Goes'.  I am also entering the Seize the Birthday 'Anything Goes' challenge and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'Gus Over the Hill' digi
Dies: Signature Dies 'Star Bunting', Memory Box 'Classic Numbers'
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: Green spot, red matt, white silk

I trimmed the spot paper and attached it to the card blank.  The Gus image and sentiment were resized and printed onto white card.  The panel was trimmed and coloured with Promarkers before being attached to the centre of the card.  I die cut the Star Bunting from red card and attached it across the top corner, adding three of the small stars to the right of Gus.  To finish I die cut a 5 and 0 from red card and attached them under the sentiment.
