Turning Two

Today I am sharing a card that I created for one of my best friend's son who is turning 2!  His birthday party is later on today and I can't wait to celebrate with him!

My inspiration came from the current sketch over at Mojo Monday.  I chose to follow the square option.

I kept this card very simple.  All designer paper is from Basic Grey - Max & Wiskers paper pad.  The number two was computer generated using the font Plantagenet Cherokee - size 200.  Sponging was added in Memento - Rich Cocoa.  The animals are from Stampin' Up! - Fox & Friends, and were stamped in Pumpkin Pie and Crushed Curry.  I cut the lion and giraffe out and added them to the number two using dimensionals.  My finishing touches were the stitching and some brown and white baker's twine.

Thank you for stopping by!  Wish I have been around more often - I have been working long hours lately.  I am hoping to post again soon!

  1. Great card; the most sophisticated one I've ever seen for a two year old, yet the lion and giraffe add just the perfect amount of whimsy.
