Pinwheels and Robot ...

.... Morning! My great nephew - Nico-Lewis - was 5 years old on Tuesday and I had lots of fun making a special birthday card for him:

Stamps: C&9 - All the Birthdays, Birthday Stacks; My Mind's Eye - Boy Crazy; The Greetery - Pinwheel Party Stamps
Inks: Gina K - Applemint, Key Lime, Sea Glass, Turquoise Sea, Blue Lagoon; Versafine Claire - Nocturne
Accessories; White Card; The Greetery - Pinwheel Party Stencils; Lakeland - Die cut Number; Copic Markers; SU Card - Pear Pizzazz

I'm submitting this card to Never-Before-Used-Schtuff - NBUS#33. While I shared cards yesterday made with the Pinwheel suite, this was the first card I used them on!!

I used shades of blue and green to create the pinwheel garland at the top of the card. I stamped the robot directly on to the card and also onto a scrap of white card. I coloured the one on scrap with Copic markers and cut out the head and body and adhered them to the card. I stamped a bold birthday greeting and finished by adding a large silver number 5. Inside the card, I cut a mat layer of green card and on the white panel I added a birthday greeting along with some stars and circles.

I know that Nico has received this card and had a wonderful birthday with his mum and dad, and his friends. That's all for now. Off to have my hair cut now!

I can just imagine Nico's eyes light up when he saw your awesome card, Deborah! It's perfect for a five-year old, especially with that big personalized number 5, and I love how you made the pinwheel garland! Thank you for inspiring everyone at NBUS! Holiday Hugs, Darnell
