Happy Birthday

I made this card for my youngest great-nephew's forthcoming birthday.  As I haven't made any cards for a while it took my longer to find everything than it did to make the card!

I trimmed a piece of pale blue paper and layered it onto brown paper before die cutting an oval from the left side and placing it into my MISTI.  I stamped the sentiment with dark brown ink and then attached the paper to the card front.  I die cut the precoloured LOTV Art Pad image with an oval die and then die cut a number '5' on one of the sails before inlaying the topper into the card front.  I attached a small snippet of brown paper to a piece of card before die cutting '5' and inlaying it into the card.

To make this card I used:
     6" x 6" white matt card blank
     Lili of the Valley 'Action Time' Art Pad
     My Favorite Things 'Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics' and Memory Box 'Classic Numbers' dies
     Hobby Art 'General Greetings' stamps
     Versafine Vintage Sepia ink
     Lili of the Valley 'Bear Necessities' and 'Enchantment' papers

This image is perfect for your great-nephew's birthday Kath and love the die cut number inset into the sail of the sweet little boat, and the pastel blue and brown background with the topper cut from a stitched oval die also inset looks so pretty, and a coordinating vertical sentiment to finish. x
