"Happy Birthday!"


I am experimenting with cards for my grandson Logan's birthday. He is our baby and will turn five the first of May. My grandson's are growing up so fast and I miss spending time with them. I want to make a card that is special for him. I knew when I saw this Edwin stamp that I would have to use it. Logan is always pretending he is driving a race car, or a train, or flying an airplane. I wanted to make the card bright and cheery, but I also wanted it to look like a 'guy' card. I distressed the edges to make it a bit more masculine and added a cute little airplane button. The DP is some I had when I first bought my Sizzix cutter so it is almost 'vintage'! LOL! I am still trying to figure out all the bells and whistles on my new camera. Hope you like this card. Have a great week! Blessings!
I am entering this card at the following challenges:

My Song: Garth Brooks
Sometimes I thank God for unanswered prayers
Remember when you're talkin' to the man upstairs
That just because he may not answer doesn't mean he don't care
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered
Some of God's greatest gifts are all too often unanswered...
Some of God's greatest gifts are unanswered prayers
