Happy Birthday Ryan!

My nephews 2nd birthday is this coming week, so I decided to get a head start on his card. Ryan has a doggie, so I thought the adorable Bo by Tiddly Inks would be perfect for Ryan's card. This week's challenge on the Tiddly Inks challenge blog is all about Our Pets, so this card will do double duty. :)

Bo was colored with copic markers, and has a bit of white gel pen on his eyes to make him pop. I used a little Aleene's Paper Glaze on the balloons and Bo's nose for a bit of shine. When I printed Bo, I printed the balloons separately so that I could layer them on my card.

I wanted to do something a little different, so I decided to go with a shaped card. To make the base, I cut my card stock with the largest Nestabilities Labels 6 die and then folded it in half to make my card base. The patterned paper was cut to match and layered onto the front of the card. 

Copic markers used:

Thanks for stopping by!
