I have two important birthdays to make cards for in March – my younger brother’s and his wife’s (a day apart).

So far today, I’ve made my brother’s card and I’ll be working on my SIL’s card later today (plus I have to get a package ready to mail).

I used one of my favourite Whipper Snapper images for this card – it’s just fun to colour and only requires a few different colours so it’s not too overwhelming.

My picture is a little yellow because I had to borrow the item that props my improvised photo booth up so my lights are not as close to the card as they usually are when I take a picture…

I stuck to a fairly simple layout for this card – letting the image take centre stage (or center if you prefer).  A few sequins (thanks again, M, for the samples!) and an “old school” sentiment – a technique I used to use a while ago and have recently adopted again.

I popped the paw claw? holding the gift up for a fun touch and used some Pebbles “Seen and Noted” patterned paper because the colours worked with my image. (Naughty Kelly – I coloured the image before I chose the paper)

Back to the drawing board to see what I can come up with for card number two.
