Allsorts Challenge Week 87 - Male/boy

Good afternoon.

I hope you are all having a lovely weekend.

I've made a card to enter into the Allsorts Challenge where the theme is Male/boy. It's for my nephew who will be 5 in April (I hope I don't forget I have made this card when April gets here!).


I've used a Mollie Blooms stamp which was free with the current issue of "Simply Cards and Papercrafts" magazine. The sentiment is from Cuddly Buddly and the name is spelled with letters cut with a Go Create alphabet set called "Rome". The papers are Kaiser Craft "Peachy Clean".

I was really good and let the glossy accents on the balloon dry overnight before finishing off the card!

Hugs, Clare xx
