"Have a ball" boy's b'day card

Flowers and ribbons and all those type of embellies are so fun to add to my cards, so I find making cards for girls is much easier than for boys!   But once I decided on this image, coming up with something for a boy card was easy!!   I am really pleased with the result because those little 'gumballs' are just so cute!!

Challenges...
The Stamping Boutique #23 ~ "twelve" (I used 12 mini brads)
Birthday Sundaes #38 ~ birthday card
Celebrate the Occasion #45 ~ child's birthday
Fantabulous Cricut #93 ~ "Man Time" masculine card
Card Crafter's Circle #5 ~ "Happy Birthday"



~DCWV 'All About Boys' dsp
~Bazzill cardstock
~The Stamping Boutique digi image
~used GBS and the center cut feature on my E to cut out the image 
~Copic, American Crafts, and Zig markers, gel pen
~computer generated sentiment
~mini brads from J's
~J's grosgrain ribbon

Thanks for stopping by!!

Debbie, Thanks for your nice comment about the cappuccino bottles. I wanted to tell you what a great idea you have with keeping your flowers in them. I would love to see a picture of them if you share it on your blog. I have a lot of bottles, I wish I could share some with you. I just might try your idea. That also would make a wonderful gift to our crafting friends, we could make the flowers and put them in the bottles and if we know what colors our friends like we could make them you their favorite color. Thanks for the idea, it is so nice when we share thing with our cyber friends.
Hugs, Pat
