Ruffles - A Present for You!

It's been nearly a month and a half since I made a non-Christmas card, so I had a little non-festive crafting session yesterday and made a few cards that my Mum had requested. Today's card is a birthday card for a little boy's third birthday next month. The image is 'Ruffles - a present for you' by Helz Cuppleditch, which I coloured using watercolour pencils to match the papers from the 'Party Day' pad by Crate Paper. I cut a few circles out of the papers to make 'balloons'...adding some Papermania twine held in place with a BasicGrey brad for their strings, and popped them up on 3D foam pads. I doodled borders using a black gel pen, and added a sentiment from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts.

Fantastic card!! I really love the doodling you've done around all of the layers and balloons. It makes the card feel really completed without being fussy. That's perfect for a little boy's card!
Thanks so much for sharing at HIMCR. We hope to see you back very soon!
