Crocodile birthday

Or maybe it's an alligator??? Today's card I made for my son to give to his friend. I had a lot of fun with this one!

I used Background Basics: Retro to make the "crocodile crossing" background and I colored each circle with my white gel pen. The crocodile is colored in with New Leaf trio of Copic markers.

Have a great day,

"Happy Birthday Macky" (all PTI unless noted)
Stamps: Background Basics: Retro, "Happy Birthday" from Mother, Fresh alphabet, crocodile (Sandylion), star from Star Prints
Paper: Kraft, New Leaf, Vintage Cream and Dark Chocolate
Ink: Rich Cocoa (Memento), Antique Linen and Walnut Stain (Ranger)
Other: Copic markers, dimensionals, sponge, white gel pen, rectangle scallop Nestabilitie die (Spellbinders)

So cute. Seriously. I want to frame it and put it on my kids' wall, and it has some other kid's name on it.
