Another Nephew Birthday Card

Three of my nephews celebrate their birthdays in November and December.
Today, I am sharing the second card made for my eldest nephew.
I thought making a card with the painting dies would make a
nice change from one with DIY tools!

I die-cut the sentiment from black and silver mirror card to make it
stand out better against the coloured stripes.
The products I have used are:-
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities - Bark and Brick Folder
Darice Embossing Folder - Stripe
Penny Black die - Happy Birthday
 Paint Strip/Paint Brush die - Purchased from eBay
Challenges entered:-
Crafts Galore Encore  - Anything Goes
Die Cut Divas - Anything Goes
Do-Al(l) Kreatives - Man's World
Just Keep On Creating - Anything Goes
Watercooler Wednesday - All About Occasions
Creatalicious - Anything Goes/Option - Layer it Up

Thank you for visiting today.
