Birthdays and Balloons

Good morning all, time for a new challenge over at
Today it is a really easy challenge

‘Birthdays and Balloons’
We have two sponsors


For my card I chose Jamie Hobo Clown from Lacy Sunshine.






This card is for my grandson who will be five in September.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and used papers from the Nitwit set ‘Happy Born Day’ and a freebie from craft printables.

I paper pieced his trousers using one of the Nitwit papers.
Once the front of the card was assembled, I scanned it and then loaded the image into my Silhouette to make a jigsaw to pop in a little bag on the inside.

I think this is one of my favourite cards. I love the image which was a dream to colour.
