Birthdays!

This week at Heart 2 Heart Challenges we are focusing on Birthdays. But not just any Birthdays - one for kids!! We want to see what you can create for a young person's Birthday - card, layout, or other project.

Today is my son's 23rd Birthday (you can read more at Ridiculous Lab) and I did make him a Birthday card but not a CTMH one so instead, I am sharing the card I made for my teenage nephew who is celebrating a birthday this month - take a look:


Now since this is for a teenage boy I kept it pretty simple. I used the striped paper from Mayberry and covered the pink stripes with gold stripes that were cut from another paper in the Mayberry pack. The top edge of the striped paper was then border punched and added to the card front. I also stamped three stars (Fill in the Blank stamp set), cut them out and added to the card front, pop dotting the one in the center. I added a little baker's twine along the top so the stars look like their hanging and a couple of buttons to add a little extra dimension.

I hope you will join us at H2H and show us what you can create for a kid's Birthday. Have a great week and I'll be back soon!
