Swinging Birthday Boy!

How's the snow where you are? It's melting quite quickly here...our snowman has lost his head already!

Anyway, looking to sunnier times and chance for little boys to play out, here is a quick card I made using up one of my previously coloured images...

This cute little man is from Lili Of The Valley and I coloured him with Promarkers, and chalked in the background.

I distressed the edges of the Dovecraft Sugar and Spice DP with some sandpaper, and the edges of the image and the embossed panel with my distressing tool. The embossed panel is from the Sale-A-Bration freebies from Stampin' Up! You can place your orders through me here. The sentiment is from Personal Impressions. 


Thanks so much for popping by tonight! :)
