I do love this image from StampinBella so when I was asked to make a 1st birthday card for someone for their Grandson I knew exactly what to use!
I found a site online that does free downloads as well so that was handy as I was out of blue gingham card and think gingham is perfect for boys cards.
The image was stamped with Memento Ink onto white card before matting onto a Spellbinders die called Heart Squares.

Stamps - StampinBella 'Oh the places you'll go' image and sentiment; image coloured with Promarkers and Polychromos pencils

Dies – Spellbinders Heart Squares and Memory Box Parker Lower Case Alphabet

Background – Blue Gingham downloaded from Activity Village website; Plain Blue is white linen card coloured with blue Panpastels; red gingham from my stash

Embellishments – red hearts were offcuts from using the same die on red card

Thanks for looking today, hope you have a lovely weekend and a big thank you to my new followers!
 I have lots of planned blogs for the near future, please keep a look out - not long now until the Clarity Challenge Opens on 1st March (yippee!) and Jayne Nestorenko has now announced her new stamp range due out in March called 'Apple of My Eye' so I've been busy busy busy getting samples ready for that launch too. So much fun coming up - hope you will enjoy and support both events! x
