Dude Time Doodles Birthday Challenge

This week at Dude Time Doodles, we're focusing on BIRTHDAYS! I used one of my favorite images, Cletus:


I quoted "Birthday" by the Beatles for the sentiment, and used the LD Music font to give it a musical feel. I could only find one video of someone playing this song on a banjo, but I think it would sound great!

For the background, I used a Fiskars texture plate to emboss the music-note pattern and distress it with TH Marigold ink.

I used Birthday Candles by Daisy Doodles, and colored all the images with Copics. Well, I actually colored the tiny candles on the inside (left) with colored pencils.

Hope you'll join us at Dude Time Doodles: make a fun Male Birthday card, link up, and you could win three Dude Time Doodles/Bonibleaux Designs images your choice. You're going to love the DT inspiration too!

Great birthday card! Love the musical theme and embossing. I bet Cletus sings a mean Beatles tune.
