Nathan's card

Good morning all! I hope you are well? I'm feeling much better today - I think its just a snuffly night time/ first thing thing - thankfully - but thanks for all of your well wishes! You're so kind!

Today I've got a fun card I've made for the girls to give to a boy who's birthday party they'll be going to at the weekend. He's going to be 4 - and is already much taller than our little Penny!!!

I got the image from a win on the artisitic inspirations challenge on Monday - its from Fresh Brewed Designs and is called 'Tommy in Space' - I think its just perfect for a little boy!!!

I've coloured the image with promarkers and cut out the main parts - then stamped on some black card with versa mark and added sparkling snow embossing powder. The cluster star stamp is from Lavinia - then I've added glitter parts and stamped and added the main sentiments.Those stamps are from Claritystamp. Then I've made up the card and added the stars and buttons.

Most of the challenges I want to enter this card into are for men - I'm hoping that Nathan's card is okay - he is a little man afterall!!!
