Happy birthday to you Brother

Hello there!

Today I  have a boy birthday card for you. I used the James - Happy Birthday To You stamp set.

I wanted a simple but cute card for a male/boy.

James looks so cute and the sentiment is included
and it fits perfectly with my card sketch. Woohoo!
I used Copic markers to color him up.
Skin: Lipstick Natural, Egg Shell, Baby Skin Pink, Milky White, Pale Yellowish Pink
Clothes: Sky, Light Grayish Cobalt, Pale Grayish Blue, Night Blue
Hair and shoes: Warm Gray No 5, No 7 and No 9

The paper is from Doodlebug 6x6 pad called Hip Hip Hooray
but instead of using their string die I just hand drew some because of
the varying heights I wanted to place the balloons. 

I must say that I finally opened my tiny Xyron Sticker Maker
and oh my goodness!!! I love that thing... See I'm so messy
with glue or I get glue coming out from the sides and ugh...
too much too clean up and then I always seem to forget to close the cap
but this was so good and clean! My only complaint is that 
I try to use as least possible but there still some wasted sticker sheet.
Unfortunately James head is too big for the sticker maker. LOL  
but it's not all bad it's actually a great size for coloring if you're
a beginner or up there with the coloring pros out there. 
Anyway, what I want to say is I recommend the sticker maker for those tiny little
pieces oh yea I also used it on his shirt (not the vest I colored that part.)

I fussy cut the inside shirt from the same paper pad.

That is all folks!

Thank you for visiting.

Have a great day!!!
