The main image and one cloud are stamped on a piece of Whisper White. The second cloud and birthday banner were stamped on another piece of Whisper White and fussy-cut before adding them, mounted on Dimentionals, to the main piece. All the colouring is done with my Blendabilities except for the lady's earrings which are coloured with my Gold Dazzle Stampin' Marker. I added a piece of Cherry Cobbler Baker's Twine to the banner and made it look as if it had just slipped out of her hand.
I love the looks of joy on the faces of the images. That's what makes the entire card such a happy one for me. This is also a card that I'd happily give to my husband and so I decided it would be a good one to enter into the Paper Players Challenge which is for masculine cards. It doesn't only have to be about animals, woods, tools or travel to appeal to a man.
Everything used for this card is currently a Stampin' Up! product except for the stamp set.
