Tractor Birthday

Hi and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

I don't have a St. Patrick's card or treat to share with's been forever since I have been crafty, so this may be it for awhile. :)))) I do miss having time to make those things.

Even being a Mom of a boy, those boy cards are a challenge for me.

I started this card by trimming and piecing together patterned papers from my scrap stack and adhering to the framed cardstock base.  I then took a length of baker's twine and wrapped it vertically around the card front and tied in a bow at the top of the card.

A Small Glassine Bag was added to the front ready to be decorated. I used the Cricut Cartridge Boys Will be Boys to cut the tractor. I added two silver sequins to the tires for an added decorative touch. I stamped a Happy Birthday Sentiment (My Creative Time) in a cloud.  Lastly, the gift card was added and ready for the giving.

I am joining in the fun at: House of Cards

"Make a Scene" and/or use this color inspiration~

I don't know what it is, but I just love the above photo and colors. I know I am aching for warmer weather and summer. 

I did come across this last night. This is my little guy 10 years ago....sigh...where does the time go?
