Cody's Birthday

To see the Stampin Sisters in Christ Challenge post please scroll down.
Right now I am trying to get ahead a little on my grand-children's birthday cards. Here is one of them. Yup it is for the one named Cody. He is all boy and loves  anything that can be done outside. He also has very blonde hair (looks just like his handsome father did) so I hope this qualifies for MFP challenge.

This was really not a difficult card. The most difficult thing is trying to NOT use bling and flowers and frills. He will be 7 and frills are a definite no-no! I paper pieced his outfit. I used the cuttlebug folder first one way then the other way to gave it a little more character. I added the brads - these do NOT qualify as bling do they?

Thanks for stopping by and for leaving a comment!
