Aaron's Birthday

Another birthday in our family - this time for one of our grandsons. Aaron is all boy so frills and anything considered cute would not work for him. Here is the card I came up with for him.


Aaron is in a wheelchair right now because he was born with a club foot and has had to have surgery - again. His cast is a camo print so I decided to make the background of this card camo. The way I did that is using the shaving cream technique (found HERE on StampTV). I then used my Copics to color the frog and mushroom. He liked the card - but I think he liked the $10 that was in there better! :-) With soon to be 18 grandchildren that is all we do these days! 

Thanks for stopping by and commenting.
