Hubby's birthday card...

Well ok, this one is actually hubby's card from the boys... his birthday's tomorrow so I've got time to make one from me, right?  Late one for me tonight I think lol!


I've had these animal stamps for ages and hardly used them... actually I'd forgotten all about them, but they're quite cute aren't they?  I've no idea what make they are though.  I've coloured them with koh-i-noor pencils blended with sansador, and added glossy accents to the balloons.  The sentiment is made up from various Elzybells stamps.

There are plenty of legs on my card, so it's a second entry for Less is More, where the challenge is a one-layer card featuring something with legs.  And it's also my entry for One-Layer Wednesday's 'make it personal' challenge.
