Embellish Birthdays Color Challenge Card #2

Here is my last of the 4 birthday cards I whipped up on the weekend! Again with the fab colours of the Embellish birthday Colour challenge.
This one is for my wonderful little friend William who is turning 5 next week! I also needed to get this one in the post quick smart, as he lives in Nowra with his special family which includes my amazingly beautiful friend Carli! (his mum -Hello to you fabulous Green family, sending HUGE hugs to you all!) Now I'd seen this idea ages ago on Dawn's blog - My Favourite things and wanted to show you the exact card I took my inspiration from but I couldn't find it....but that's where I first saw this. I love the way Dawn uses button's for sooo many of her projects and when I was thinking what set I could use the "good Neighbours" popped into my head.... it has clouds and those roof's upside down could make great baskets! YAY!! :0)So all I did was marker the roof that looked most basket like and stamped them on the card! Added the Button Hot air balloons and then drew in the strings. Stamp some clouds floating by and there you have it.....
I was soooo happy with how this turned out, I even gave my handwriting another go after all the lovely comments last time and did a personal greeting! YAY!!

So there you have it, 4 cards in one wonderful Sunday afternoon of stamping! BLISS!
Smiles and Hugs SHarnee :0)

This is so cute!! I love the fact it could be adapted for boy or girl. It's so hard to come up with boy cards. Or for any occasion really. The use of buttons really add an interesting dimension to the card!! xxx
