Moving Along with the Times - Birthday Boys

This week it's Susan's turn to host the challenge over at Moving Along with the Times. She also chose the theme - Birthday Boys - so here is my card.

I used a large square card blank by Joanna Sheen. The mat is blue Mirri board from Joanna Sheen, dark red card from Papermill and then an embossed sheet of grey card from Papermill. The embossing folder is by Crafter's Companion. The image is by April of Reece's Scrap Pieces over at Stitchybear Digi Outlet. I coloured Toby with Promarkers and cut him with a Spellbinders nestie, matting it on to blue Miiri board. I used another Spellbinders die to cut a resplendent rectangle which I criss crossed with baker's twine from Creative Expressions. I added a ruby red Card Candi to each corner and then finished it all off with a Happy Birthday sentiment that I generated on the computer before cutting with yet another Spellbinders die.

I have to go to the dentist this morning so I'll be round to visit all the DT later and I'll link up to the challenges later too.

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges - No Designer Paper
A Gem of a Challenge - One for the Boys
My Sheri Crafts - Use a Digi
Passion for Promarkers - Anything Goes
Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
