1st birthday card


I was asked for some 1st birthday cards and remembered seeing these images at Bugaboo, so this is my first Bugaboo card... I'm sure I'll be back for some more images though :o)  I've coloured him with promarkers, with a little bit of shading using koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador, and then added some glossy accents to the 'icing'.  The papers are from an MME pad that was free with a magazine, cardstock is from Papermill.  Stars cut with nesties, sentiments from Craftwork Cards... finished with some buttons from my stash, but even though there are hundreds of buttons in my stash, I couldn't find anything that matched properly.  Hopefully they don't look too awful!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
Sorry to rush, my boys are hungry and naughty mummy hasn't done their tea yet!  Thanks for the replies about Kraft card - Victoria, I'll be in touch later if that's ok!
