Boy's First Birthday card

Hello and Happy Wednesday!

I came across a card that I forgot to share on my blog. You may have already seen it on Stampin' Connection or in my Splitcoast gallery. I made this card for my precious little nephew, Charlie. I wanted to personalize it with his name. I knew how I wanted the card to look, but that part showed up on the inside:) I wasn't sure how to decorate the front. I remembered seeing several cards where stampers used the Boquet Blossom punch to make a bow for a package, so I decided to use that idea and I added some balloons to the front. You can't go wrong with Primary colors, so I went with my favorite color family, the Brights!

Here is the front of the card:

And the inside:

Stamps: On Your Birthday, Choo Choo, & Right on Track wheel
Ink: Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie, Tempting Turquoise, Old Olive, Real Red & Chocolate Chip
Paper: Pacific Point, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie, Old Olive & Whisper White
Other: Blossom Boquet, 1" Square, 3/4" circle & Small Oval punches, Real Red & Pumpkin Pie 1/8" Taffeta ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine, Big Shot & Billboard Strip Tie

Thanks so much for coming by today and don't forget to leave a comment on yesterday's post here for a chane to win Blog Candy. Spread the word to your friends:)

Have a terrific day!!!
