You're Such A Big Boy

I am excited to be sharing with you today my very first project as part of the design team for the new die cut challenge over at Stuck On U Sketches.  Our theme for this challenge was the word "play."  So, stop by and "play" along with us and have some fun!  Here is a link to the challenge.

The card I made is for my grandson's 2nd birthday, which is actually this weekend.  I can't believe he is two already.  He's such a sweetheart.  I did not have a son, only girls, so I am enjoying this new adventure into boys.

Here are the details of my card:

Size:  A2
Card Stock:  DCWV and Bazzill Bling
Star Background:  This is an embossing folder I found at Hobby Lobby made by The Paper Studio -- great for guy cards!
Patterned Paper:  DCWV Dots Stripes and Plaids stack
Tricycle:  Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge cut at 2 1/2".  I cut two layers of the tricycle and separated them with pop up dots and also cut a shadow layer.
"You're Such A":  Computer generated using Tabitha font.  I cut my strip of paper to size and then took a 1 inch square punch, turned it over and lined it up and punched.
"BIG":  Boys Will Be Boys Cricut cartridge cut at 1 3/4".  Again, I cut two layers of the cut and separated them by pop up dots.  I then layered it on a circle punch and a Nestabilities scalloped octagon shape
"BOY":  Cuttlebug Baby Face font set
Scalloped circle border:  EK Success border punch

Thanks for looking and for your comments that make my day!
