Birthday Card for my Nephew

 Today's card is one I made for my nephew earlier this month, using snippets of 
paper and card from my ever growing stash!

I found the idea for this card on Pinterest.

I made the 7"x5" card base using a stone coloured A4 sheet of card.
Next I embossed a smaller piece of brown card with the textured
embossing folder and glued it to the card base.

Using 4 snippets of design papers which I glued to some lightweight card,
I die-cut them with a set of stitched banner dies.

Next, I used a piece of the stone card and die-cut the sentiment banner
with one of the set of Creative Expressions (Sue Wilson) Pierced Flags
from the Frames and Tags set.

Lastly I added the Presscut Happy Birthday and some small circles
punched with an EK Success punch.
