Poppi Penguin Birthday

The card I'm sharing today is for my Nephew's 3rd birthday party.  The party is tomorrow.  I'm getting the card done just under the wire as usualMost of my cards are geared more towards adults so I don't have a lot of kids cards.  It was so much fun making this card!


  
I combined 2 challenges in this card.  For the layout, I used this week's CAS(E) this Sketch sketch.  I popped the star off the corner for this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge to have a tag or element going over the edge.   I had a yellow polka dot ribbon stapled to the top of the card where the star now is.  It just looked like it didn't belong there so I carefully pulled it off and left a gaping hole in the top left corner.  I covered that hole with the yellow star which I punched out of a scrap of yellow paper that had been embossed with the chevron embossing folder from Stampin Up and a small red star. 


The image is Poppi Penguin from Bugaboo Stamps.  I used primary colors for the base and the elements.  The base is real red, the top layer is Night of Navy (even though it looks black in this picture).  I embossed the Night of Navy with the PTI canvas embossing plate. The base layer and stars and sentiment are all adhered with dimensionals.

Thanks for checking out my card today!!

Julie, that is such a cute card for your nephew. I like the star over the edge, too. I bet the party was soooo much fun. Three is my favorite age for little tykes. They say the cutest and sweetest things.
