Birthday Boy



I love making childrens cards, they're the perfect excuse for going wild with colour and kids get so excited when they get something with their name on.  This card is for a pal of my son's who will be six next week.
The stamp is Molly Bloom and was a magazine freebie a while back.  I've coloured it with Promarkers and highlighted the balloon and shoes with Anita's 3D gloss.
The patterned papers were also magazine freebies and the plain cardstock is all Papermania.
I made the bunting with a Stampin' Up punch which has become a firm favourite.  The lettering was done with Papermania Capsule Collection cardstock stickers.
The stars were were cut with Xcut dies and some ribbon and a few buttons provide the finishing touches.

I am entering this card into the following challenges -
Hotshot Crafts - #4 - One for the Boys
Totally Papercrafts - Rainbow
The Crafty Pad - #157 - The Letter B
