James' Birthday..my baby is 6!!
How did he get so big so fast! Happy Birthday James, I hope you have a lovely day with your friends.
The layout and colours for this came from Stamping 411. The stamp set is called from Sunny Fun and it really does make me think of summer (which we are supposed to be heading into) and swimming (lessons which the kids are doing at the moment).
I used the Stripes embossing folder for three reasons; 1. I thought the stripes were a good contrast for the circles, 2. I am hoping it gives the look of a beach towel, and 3. I just got it and it was begging to be used, lol!
Stamp sets: Sunny Fun, Short and Sweet
Card: Baja breeze, so saffron, calypso coral and whisper white
Accessories: Stripes embossing folder, marina mist ribbon, 11/4" and 13/8" circle punches, Lots of tags sizzlits, tempting turquoise mini brads, blender pens and ink pads for watercolouring
