1st birthday

This is the card I made and sent to my youngest grandchild who was one on Friday. I created the repeated Birthday greetings background digitally on computer, adding a free download of Elmer the elephant. I played around with addition the lettering on to Elmer (had to print out and adjust a few times to get it right), then printed everything and mounted on to an 8 x 8 card blank.

This is for:

  12. Lovely card. Unfortunately our challenge requires hand coloured image, so your card isn't part of the winner draw.
