First Birthday

Another week, another challenge at Meljen's Designs . . . And this one is her 100th, wow! I'm using her sweet little Giraffe and Happy Birthday sentiment to make this card, yet another boy birthday card for Card Cupids' March Card Drive!

It's also appropriate to celebrate the birth of our nephew; he arrived right on time and is a real cutie . . . although I still can't get over the fact that my little brother-in-law is a daddy (he's in his 30s now, but he'll always be a kid to me!) Happy first birthday sweet nephew!


The papers and banner are freebies from Quick Cards Issue 90 August 2011; I photocopied them onto white linen cardstock to give them some weight & texture. Now I can use them again! Magazine paper is heck to work with, anyhow.
