Birthday Cards

Yes another Birthday party to go to this weekend. A boy card this time & I will have another for you soon with another party coming up in the next couple of weeks..
I was inspired by Kristy Young & her great boy cards for this layout. I have used my new toy the Cricut to cut the oval around him note to self cut then stamp in future, I am a little of centre with my cutting I am sure I will improve with time and lots more playing.. I had a shocker with my colouring, my skin colour ran out & it is one of the colours I don't have a refill for will be getting onto that.

I have used a mix of items some are from old scrapbooking items I have had for years like the Chatterbox, Making memories 6x6 papers & the Philip's head screw eyelets.
The base of the card is SU! Bordering Blue, Jumbo eyelets, Chocolate Chip Ribbon & Sincere Salutations Stamp Set.
Skater Ian from The Greeting Farm stamp.
