Big Top Birthday!

I needed to make a birthday card for a little boy turning four years old.  What could be more perfect than the bright pure colors of the Big Top Birthday Designer Series Paper!?!  Kids love bright colors and this DSP is just the thing!
How about some stars and stripes to celebrate a birthday!  Love this eye-popping color scheme of Real Red, Tempting Turquoise and pure Whisper White!  I ran the stripes horizontally because that worked better with the "happy" greeting and the die cut number.  The "4" was cut from both Real Red and Whisper White with the Alphabet Simple Numbers (115968).  The "happy" is from the retired set Happy Everything.
To cover the seam where the two patterned papers meet, I punched a zig-zag edging of Whisper White using the Pinking Hearts Border Punch #117649 (don't let the name fool you, it can work well on a masculine card too!)  I punched three stars out of the sparkly Silver Glitter Paper and it really does pop in person!

This was a pretty quick card and fun to make;  I didn't figure a four year old little boy would spend much time with it but would go right for the gift, lol!  It's a bright and fun card and I'm happy with the results!

Thanks for visiting today!  Hope to see you back here soon!
