Happy First Birthday

Morning lovely Bloggers!
Is it Sunday already!
Oh my, how the weekend flies by!
I hope you're all well & finding time to get crafty!
Once again, it's time for The Crafty Pad Team A
to inspire you for this weeks challenge.
The theme was chosen by the very lovely & oh so talented Diane
Here's my card

It's little fold-back card!
Still can't get away from those squares! lol

This card is destined for my Great Nephew whose 1st birthday is on Tuesday!
The image I have used is one of my fave's from The Crafty Pad Designs

To give a softer look, I changed the line colour of the image in Word.
You'll find a tutorial here by the lovely Leesa on how to do it!
I coloured the image with a combination of Flexmarkers & Promarkers.
The toned it down by colouring over it.

The papers I have used are from my Hopscotch Boy pad 
by K&K I do so love these papers!

I made the circle sentiment in my graphics programme on the pc!
I inked all the edges with two colours of distress ink then added
some little buttons & funky fibres to finish it off!
Thanks for popping in!
I look forward to seeing your creations in the
More Than One Fold Challenge at The Crafty Pad this week!
