I needed to make a card for my son to send to his half brother who will be 3 soon
What I have used....
The background and text circle I used the cuttlebug birthday folder & sepia versafine, I have used a selection of circle and oval nestibilities and believe it or not a flower punch added shading with distress inks vintage photo, the fluffy end on the tail is the small hero Art flower punch that I layered up, the number 3 is from the Olivia set. I also used a brown sakura identi pen that we just got in last week to do eyes and dots on his cheeks and the faux stitching, a white gel pen on the brown and you guessed it my ever faithful glossy accents I used on the brown nose and the number.
I am entering it in the Alsorts Challenge this week as they have asked for NO stamped images and I have no image or text stamped, Hope its ok! MY son said he loves it so I guess that's the best thing!
