This card was made for my great Nephew who was the grand age of SIX yesterday and I do hope that he had a fabulous time.
This Lili of the Valley image, 'Land Ahoy !' was so much fun to colour with my Promarkers and to keep with the nautical theme I thought I'd make a porthole using silver eyelets to surround the image. The background papers are both freebie digi's that I have had for a long time, the wave die is from La La Land Crafts and I have glittered the top edges. A couple of Doohickey Swirl dies to frame the focal image and some banners cut with a Verve banner die to display his age. I did emboss this with clear embossing powder to make it glossy but it's not showing here. To finish it off I stamped and embossed an LOTV circle sentiment and added large, red brads.
As there are two LOTV products used I would like to enter my card in to their challenge this month.

I had a lovely email a couple of days ago from Kathi who is the co-owner of 613 Avenue Create Weekly Challenge blog asking if I would like to join their Design Team !
Well as you can imagine after I came back down from the ceiling I emailed her straight back and was delighted to accept the post. I have been blogging for nearly a year now and this will be my first DT post and I am so very excited if a little nervous but thrilled to be chosen, thanks Kathi. I will be starting next month so wish me luck !
