Happy birthday Colin!

My son's 5th birthday was last Sunday and this is the card I made him. He is getting too old now for some of my stamps that are more babyish (cars, airplanes etc) and unfortunately I don't have any Darth Vader or Star Wars stamps, LOL! But luckily for me, everyone loves balloons, so I made him this card:

And you'll have to indulge me as I share a few photos of him from his bug themed-party.

Here he is holding the millipede:

Thanks for stopping by!

What an adorable card, Melissa! That paper is fantastic. The cupcakes look great too (sans the bugs) but I love the grass icing! :)

Happy Birthday to Colin!! What a fun theme, Bug Party. The card is very cute for a boy and I love how you highlighted the 5 on the balloon!

OK, when did you become a cupcake maker extrordinaire?! How awesome are they? You son is a cutie pie and that card is so cheerful and perfect for a 5 year old. That BG PP practically screams "kids" to me!
