Daniel's Birthday Card - Quixotic Paperie Challenge

Whilst browsing blogland last week, I came across Craftyc's (Claire) blog and noticed that she wanted people to make a card for her son, Daniel. It was only two days from his birthday, but I really wanted to send him a card as I knew it would mean so much to him. Therefore, it's not the most elaborate card in the world, as I dashed it off in a few minutes - but he seemed to enjoy the cards he received. As a mum to two children with Autism, I know how much enjoyment our children can gain from the simplest of gifts. I was going to write his name on the hoody but I forgot!!

Quixotic Paperie's second challenge has the theme - Stitching and can be real or faux. As I'm deadly near a sewing machine (I think I still have the scars to prove it!), I'm entering this card with my pretend stitching instead. :)

Stamped Image: My Guy Ian by The Greeting Farm, coloured with ProMarkers.

Background Stamping: Sentiment Circles by Autumn Leaves.
Sentiment: Birthday Messages and Whimsical Numbers by Hero Arts.

Papers: Citronella Designer Mat Pad by K&Co.

Faux stitching - Inkssentials Opaque Pen in White by Ranger.
