Happy Birthday James

I made this card for Steve's nephew's birthday using my Oliver digi stamp (I think all the boys have now had cards with this image so I'll need to buy another one soon!).  I'm entering the Allsorts 'Happy Birthday' challenge, the Alphabet Challenge 'D for Dots' and A Gem of a Challenge 'It's a Man's World'. 

Card blank: 6" x 6" white silk
Stamp: Lili of the Valley 'Oliver Texting' digi
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: White silk
Paper: Hot off the Press 'Ultimate Floral Pack'
Other: Computer generated sentiment 'Tempus Sans ITC' font

I trimmed the striped paper to a square and and attached it to the card.  I then layered a co-ordinating piece of spot paper to the left side.  I resized the digi and added the sentiment before printing it onto white card, trimming it to a square and colouring it with Promarkers.  I attached two slightly smaller squares of white card behind the image to give a little dimension and attached it to the centre.
