Stamped this super cute Penny Black image and colored with copics. Punched out the balloons and the numbers 3 and 0 from gold DP. Stamped the birthday sentiment and popped it on dimensionals. The image is cut in a square and fussy cut around the flowers.
I have a ton of black die cut circles on my desk and as a fun way to use them I cut one in half and attached them to the photo to make it look like they are holding the photo to the card. The balloons are on dimensionals and bakers twine wrapped around them.
This card is for my nephew. He and his daughter share a birthday. I will make her a card just for her but we are always joking with my nephew that his birthday is no longer about him it is about her which is why I thought this picture was perfect for his card and I colored one of the balloons pink for her. He will love this and the symbolism in the card.

Such a beautiful card, Lisa!! I love the precious image that you did a great job of coloring, especially his hair! I suspect your nephew will enjoy such a lovely card that depicts him with his baby girl!

I think you have colored this beautifully! I love the denim background and how you repeated it with the pants in the image. You fooled me for sure with your black circles as I thought the focal images was attached that way!
