Twin's Birthday Cards

The theme for this week’s challenge at Come and Get It  is to use a ribbon or bow in the design.  I was making my niece’s twin little boys, Alex and Edwin cards for their 3rd birthday and decided to use one of our sponsors of this week’s challenges, Di’s Digi’s images. I found these two images that I thought would make great birthday cards for the boys. I like to find images that are similar but still give them a card made especially for each of them.   

 I coloured the images with Copic Markers and added details with a white gelli pen. I layered the images of similar papers, added a birthday greeting, a banner, some stars die cuts and of course a ribbon  to complete the cards. Hope the boys enjoy the card as much as I enjoyed making it.

Come join us this week at Come and Get It this week.   Just create your card and add a ribbon or bow and enter it here.
