Whoo-hoo! Oh, yeah! 5 x 5 Birthday Card

Hi there!  If you are a follower of mine, I apologize for being MIA for almost 2 weeks - just some family matters needed to be addressed and crafting had to be put in the back burner.  I was also in the midst of a vicious cold that kept circling my family :(.  All is better now though and so I'm slowly getting back to crafting.  If you're just visiting me for the first time, welcome and I hope you come back soon! 

Today I made a card for a little boy in my DD's first grade class who is having his 7th birthday party this Saturday.   The base of the card is a 5 x 5 Kraft paper.  The image is from a digital bundle I purchased from Stretch 'n Bubbles back in December before they closed down the site.  I am trying my hands at coloring digital images, so if you're a stamper try not to giggle too much at my coloring, okay?  LOL!  I used Prismacolor colored pencils I got from Michaels.  I really need to work on my coloring and shading, but I did enjoy coloring as it was so relaxing (who knew!).  I then cut the image and the mat behind it with  Nestability dies I have had for a long time.  I added a strip of blue cardstock behind the image and its mat - it is embossed with the Spots and Dots CB folder.  The sentiment is computer generated using the Boyz are Gross font.  I then added 3 Card Candis on the bottom to finish off the front. 

Here is a shot of the inside of the card.

 The sentiment is again computer generated using the same font as the one on the front of the card.   I added the same colored blue strip of cardstock on top, which is also embossed with the same CB folder. 

That's it for me for today!  "See" you all again soon!
