Happy Birthday Challenge

It is a birthday challenge at Crafty Card Makers this week.  I made this little boys card for one of my nieces twin boys' birthday who was turning 4.  

This is the card I made for the other twin.

The images are from Sandra Caldwell digital stamps and although they are different I thought they were similar enough for twin's birthday. . 

 I coloured the images  and sentiment with Copics and added a dotted background, a sentiment,  some layers and a button the complete the cards.

Thank you for stopping by and have a creative day.  Pop over to our challenge board to see the inspiring creations of our design team.
