Happy Birthday Dude

Happy Thursday, all my crafty friends.. Boy oh boy, it's been so hot here in Oklahoma lately.. So, my kiddos and me have been keeping cool in our little pool..My son has been so cute trying to surf on his little blow up boogie board.. Watching him try to surf totally gave me the inspiration for my card.. I also used a sponge and ink technique to create to waves on my background.. I really love the way my waves turned out :0)


Here's what I used to create my card:

*Cricut American Alphabet (penguin)
*Graphically Speaking (surf board & circle {to sponge around on the back ground})
* "Father and Son stamps"set ( Joy’s Life product page )
*"Boy Mates assortment" (Peachy Keen)
* Paper (the Paper Studio & scraps)
*Ink
*Make up Sponge
*Scalloped Decorative Scissors (for the waves)
*White pen
*Black Marker
*Stickles
*Rhinestones
