A Birthday Bash...

My uber-smart brother-in-law, Scott, is known to my little rugrat as "Uncle Soggy." He used to be the "baby" of the family, but now he is a litigator and an attorney and a super cool guy. With a birthday coming up, I decided to make him a fun card to help him celebrate.

This week, Stamp TV offered up a fun sketch, which I rotated and mixed up just a teeny bit to suit my needs. I stamped this adorable little truck onto red card stock, highlighting with a few Copic markers and then shined up with a glaze pen. Next, I cut a cute gift and balloons from some cute patterned paper and put them in the truck bed. After trimming more of the paper for the background elements, I finished off with a cut-out sentiment. Happy B-Day to our favorite Uncle Soggy!

This is super cute! Like the sketch. You've provided/inspired an idea for me to make a card needed for one of my brothers late this month!
