I'm so pleased to be sharing a project over at My Craft Spot today - and am posting it here on my blog as well. My youngest nephew recently turned four years old. He absolutely loves basketball so when I saw the little character from the new Create a Friend cartridge, I knew it would be perfect for my nephew's card, especially as I found a little basketball set to give him too.
The Create a Friend character actually has a 1 on his shirt so I used my Gypsy to switch things to a 4, in order to match my nephew's age. I used a Peachy Keen face for the little guy's face. Both the blue and white mats were embossed with a QuicKutz polka-dot folder.
The Happy Birthday! sentiment is from My Craft Spot's Inside & Out - Set #2. I used one of the dies from the My Craft Spot Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies for the little pennants at the side. I finished things off with some fun enamel dots from my wonderful friend Susie of Susie Craft Happy. (Thanks again, Susie. I am LOVING these enamel dots!)
