Punch it out!

My lucky son has another birthday party on Saturday.  This time paintballing.  Freshly Made Sketches this week has the perfect sketch for me to make an appropriate card. 

Here's the sketch - 

So my spots are to represent paintballs and I've also stamped paint splatters behind the sentiment. 

I followed my Colour Coach to select the colours and I think they look quite boyish.  The base card is Tempting Turquoise with a mat of Whisper White.  

For the top layer I punched out circles using the 1 3/8" Circle Punch and corner rounded the corners.  I ran it through the Square Lattice Embossing folder.  I then punched more circles in Rich Razzleberry to fit into all but one circle.  I topped these with a 1" Circle of Pumpkin Pie embossed with the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder. 

"Happy Birthday" is from For My Family and stamped in Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry. I then used the splatter from French Foliage in Tempting Turquoise, stamping on some scrap first before stamping over the sentiment. 

This top layer was attached using Dimensionals.  

I'm pleased with the way this has turned out and at least it's in plenty time for the party this time! 

What a glorious sunny day we had today, hope you had fun.  Thanks for stopping in by. x
