Birthday Card for a Child

Happy Tuesday! This week at Tuesday Throwdown our theme is For a Child and we are sponsored by Digital Delights. My card is featuring their Birthday Mickey Monkey image and I paired it with patterned paper from the Cherry On Top paper stack by Stampin' Up!. The design team has some super cute inspiration this week. Click here to check out all the challenge details and design team inspiration. You have until mid-day on Monday, May 29th to play along.

The layout for this Birthday Card for a Child is from the Sketch Saturday Challenge. When I was coloring the image I noticed my lightest tan Copic marker is going dry, on top of that I tried a new white cardstock which did not allow the alcohol markers to blend well. So, I'm not really happy with how the coloring came out on this card. It's probably a good thing it's for a child, hopefully they won't notice.

This card is entered into the following challenges:


  1. Cute card, Andrea. The papers are perfect for the image.
    x Asha

  2. The hat on the monkey and the background paper work so well together. The bright colors will be loved by some happy child.

  3. This is so cute! The papers are so fun to match those balloons.

  4. This is a lovely card Andrea. Love the sweet image. Thanks for playing along with us at Sketch Saturday and we hope to see you next week. Hugs, Gale DT

  5. Loving your sweet monkey and how his balloons coordinate so well with the dotty papers. Thank you for joining in the fun with Sketch Saturday this week. Hugs, Lesley
