Make My Monday #54 - childrens birthday

Good Morning all and welcome to a new week.  I hope you had better weather than we did down here.

Its time again for a new challenge over at Make My Monday

the theme this fortnight is


So i made this card for a 8 year old boy who is meerkat mad.

A5 white cardblank.  Meercat topper printed using serif, using a digikit, i printed him out twice and cut out the 2nd one and decoupaged him.  Die cut using ovals and matted onto a reddy brown cardstock picking up the colour in the meerkat.  I found a co-ordinating paper in my stash, wrapped with bakers twine and added doodled stitched borders.  

Die cut party time letters and added glossy accents. Faux white enamel dots using a hole punch and glossy accents, i just felt it needed something and didn't think gems would be appreciate by a 8yr old boy! lol

Just a close up of the meekcat, i also added glossy accents to his party hat

Items used:
Daisytrail 'Wild Love'  
Papers - Papermania Mr Smiths workshop
Memory box alpha dies
Creative expressions bakers twine
Spellbinders grand oval dies

Everyone is welcome to join in the challenges so please do pop over to Make My Monday for more details and see what the rest of the team came up with.
