Third Birthday

Hi Everyone,
 So I am feeling very creative this week. My husband is on a business trip so I have spent a lot of time in my office. Of course, I am sure he is missing me so much he probably has difficulty concentrating hahaha! For now it is just me and my every loyal, sparkly dog Max!

Today I made a birthday card for our friend's little boy who is turning 3 this week. That is such a fun age!
I am happy to say, I made this card entirely from my scrap box. No new paper was harmed in the making of this card.

I used a La La Land stamp called Cowboy Luca. Colored with copics. Added some buttons for balloons and some sheriff star buttons. Also used some bakers twine for ribbon strings. Added a little glossy accents to his badge for shine. I decorated the inside of the card today, this is something I have never really done before. I have seen it many times on other peoples cards but this is my first attempt. Not bad I think.



I am entering this card at:
Just Us Girls Technique challenge, must use buttons.
Delightful Sketches Use your scraps.

Hope you enjoyed your visit. Thanks to all those who have posted some great comments on my cards, much appreciated. Please check back again soon and see what I have been up to.
