This month's theme for the Bombshell blog hop (You should have arrived from Rachael's beautifumous blog) is "Let's Hear it for the Boys." I don't know about you but I CANNOT get the song out of my head now. Alison has challenged us to make a Boy themed card. I could have made the original one I was thinking of, but then I couldn't have posted it and maintained my PG rating. But you know what else it is? It is Bombshell's FIFTH BIRTHDAY! So I decided to make a birthday card for a 5 year old boy for this Hop.
I used some pirate paper from the All About Boys DCWV stack. I matched that with the image of the two Bottlenose Dolphins from Mermaid Anchor, and the Happy Birthday banner from Banner Sayings.
The dolphins are colored with B41, 45 and C3. The reds are R32, 35, 37 and the yellows are Y32, 35, 38. The rope is the standby E31, 33, 35, 37. The silver being C1, 3, 5. Once I was done, I went over a bunch of it with a sparkly pen.
I used Nesties to cut out the smaller navy level and then layered the pirate speak paper over that with the next size Nestie cut out. The other nifty thing I had fun with was the knot. This is called a Carrick Bend knot. I found a cool page to instruct me on how to make this.
Ok... now that you have seen my Birthday card, I hope you will hop along with us.
