You're a star

Happy Tuesday! Hope you're having a good week so far!  

I have a new card to share today, which I made for a cute little boy who just turned 6. I thought the Tiddly Inks Image "Super Boy" was perfect for his card. It's been printed on copic xpress blending card, and colored with copic markers. Fussy cutting was done using my cutterbee scissors.

 I used several dies from Whimsy stamps on this card - balloon cluster die (but I only used the oval balloon from the cluster), the star is from Whimsy's sun moon star die set, and then the banner on the top left is from the die set pennants. 
The sentiments are also from Whimsy (Everyday Moments). The number 6 is from an old SU numbers set.

The designer paper is from an old SU paper pack. I wanted a city background for the card, and this was all I had, but I do like how it turned out.

Above is what the inside looks like. I don't usually do a lot of decorating inside my cards, I usually add a white mat with a little bit of matching designer paper, but for this card I stamped a birthday verse (also from Whimsy Stamps) on the inside, and a few stars (from a retired SU set).

Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay warm where ever you are! More snow for us in today's forecast. I am sure the kids are excited to get out early because of it :-) Who knows, they might even get a snow day tomorrow.

Have a great day!!
