I used today's sketch to create a birthday card I needed for my niece's husband's Birthday on Friday.
They are the parents of my dear Grand Nephew, Landon, who is now 4 months old - so this is his dad's first birthday as a DAD!
So I thought it would be fun to send him a card as if it was from Landon himself (I'll include some cute little note from Landon saying how he skyped me when they weren't looking to ask me to make the card for him!)
I kept the sketch clean and simple with this adorable photo of Landon front and center. I didn't even want to put the sentiment strip over his cute little striped legs - so I stamped it right on the color panel below the pic.
I used bright colors to match those of the colorful play seat Landon is having so much fun in!
On the inside I put another picture of Landon with his Dad as well as the sentiment "You're the Best" I'll be posting it on my blog on Friday if you want to check it out then!
