Cory's Birthday Card

It's hard to believe that Cory will be five in a couple of weeks! He spotted this paper in the craft shop the other day, and I knew it would be perfect for his card as he is so into animals at the moment.... he's decided he wants to go on Safari - not sure if we're ready for that yet!

Anyway, here's the card:

It's another digi-stamp, this time from Grab-a-doodle-do. I'm afraid I cheated a bit and used the ready coloured image as none of my markers/paints etc were quite right. So, the background is Sandylion 'At The Zoo' and it is matted on dark brown Core'dinations cs. The strip is Sandylion 'Stripe' paper, again matted on cs. I printed the image and matted it before popping it up on foam pads, and added the ribbon from American Crafts. The sentiment is typed up in MS Word, as is the number 5 which I printed the outline only onto HOTP Wild Things Giraffe print paper. This I cut out and layered on a couple of nestie circles. Instead of using brads, I used some peel off stickers (or the negatives left behind on the sheet) as I could colour them to match with peel off markers.

This card will also be entered into the Charisma Cardz Challenge and Secret Crafter Challenge for this week.

Thanks for looking, let me know what you think :)
