Boy's Birthday

My backyard neighbor's son just celebrated his 3rd birthday. I used Mary Jo's Techno Stamper's Monday Sketch #15 for inspiration for the layout. I did change the center from an oval to a square, it just worked better for this. Technically, this is my second card using her sketch, but the first was for a friend's daughter's fourth birthday and I forgot to take a picture. I was disapointed since I thought it was cute. I don't often have the opportunity to use my Dreams & Dragons stamp set!

I used my SU ink pad lids and Aqua Painter to watercolor the toys. I should have used my SAMJ for the happy birthday since I was using the omitting technique, but I was in a hurry. Oh well, I doubt he'll care since he can't even read yet! LOL! NOTE: I believe I used It's Your Birthday stamp set for the sentiment, but at this time I can't find it to verify.
