Two birthday cards

This first card is for a four year old boy.  The pirate and parrot are decoupaged.  I had to cut everything out - damn the non pop-out type! 

The second card is for a 20 year old boy who is a referee.  I found this one quite hard and had to search long and hard for a referee - they obviously aren't popular!  I then coloured it in.  I like the dark green background which has a texture to it that reminds me of grass.

Stardust Card

I've been wanting to make a card where the printing is directly on the card itself, but so far haven't had the guts in case it went wrong!  I then read a useful tip to print what you want on a normal piece of white paper - then blue tack the card onto the paper exactly where you want the design, then print it again.

For my first attempt I have used the lovely and popular sentiment 'Birthdays are ordinary days sprinkled with stardust.'  I thought it stood up on its own without the need for any other major embellishment.

  The birthday has stickles on it in 'Sequins' and stardust has glamour dust.
