Happy Birthday

Good morning all. It was a lovely day here yesterday although decidedly chilly!

A card I made in December for my nephew. As he's a staunch Newcastle fan I had to apologise to him in advance for the colours when I gave him it and he immediately said "why is it red and white"!

Topper is from LOTV and papers are from Wild Rose Studios. Buttons and sentiment from my stash.

Challenges entered:
Crafty Bloggers Network - anything goes
Love to Create - celebrate
Pause Dream Enjoy - mainly red
A Gem of a Challenge - gingham or checks
