A Birthday Card for a Two Year Old Boy

Today I am sharing a card I made recently for a friend of mine, to give to her grandson. 

Last month, Hobbycraft sent me an email enclosing a £5 voucher to spend online
 or in-store. Not one to miss out on a 'treat', I went into our local store and put it towards
a set of number dies which I have used on Arthur's card.
I decided to outline the number with a very fine black pen to make it 'pop'.

The items I have used are:-
Crafter's Companion CD Rom - Angelina and Friends Collection
(Image and Backing Paper)
First Edition dies - Number and Date
Couture Creations A4 Embossing Folder - Swiss Dots
Sentiment - PC generated

Challenges entered:-
Crafty Girls Creations - Anything Goes
Crafting with an Attitude - Anything Goes
Crafting by Designs - Anything Goes
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Moo-Mania - Wheels
The Paper Shelter - A Card for a Child
Aud Sentiments - Cute + A Sentiment

My next card will also be using these number dies!
Thanks for stopping by.
