Bright birthday card

My middle child shares the exact same birthday as his cousin who is one year older so we generally do a combined party for them. This is the card that I made for Cousin Brian :-)

Pun Fun has been on my wish list since I saw it in the catty but I've kept holding off on buying it. I was pretty excited when I saw that it was part of a recent SU promo but still held off until the last day of the promo when my willpower gave out on me. Now, I'm wondering what on earth I was waiting for! This set is super cute and I totally love it!!!!! I know that it will be getting lots of use in the future.

The cardbase is Tempting Turquoise. The yellow patterned paper is from a 6X6 pad from Sassafras Lass and the red is from the SU Hostess pack. I stamped the image onto Neenah Classic Crest Solar White with Palette Hybrid Noir and then colored it in with Copics. I cut it out with Square Nestabilities and then matted it on an Only Orange Scalloped Square which was also cut with my Nesties. I highlighted the swirls and stars with a Lemon Spica Glitter pen and the little window with Ranger's Glossy Accents. The image is popped up on dimensionals. I finished the card off with some dew drops and a rub on from the SAB set and tah-dah! A perfect card for a little guy who's turning 7.

Thanks for visiting!
