The Pixie Cottage Challenge 11-The Color Green

The Pixie Cottage Challenge this week is the use of the color green in celebration of St. Patrick's Day, although the card does not have to have a St. Patty's theme. So I took the opportunity to use Eileen Gutierrez's new Birthday Boy stamp.  I colored him with Copics.  The balloons have some crystal effect on them. (Hard to see that in the picture)
The paper is from Basic Grey's Origins line. I used my Spellbinders die and a cuttlebug folder to embellish.
The edge punch is from the Martha Stewart line.
I have a little trouble with "boy" cards as I never know what to use as embellishments. (flowers are a staple of mine) 
Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

Love this boy card Michelle, I don't make many boy cards because all I have 4 granddaughters and my son is a MAN and doesn't like childish cards. But I love the different textures of this card.

Look at him! He is so cute. I just love that rainbow pin amidst the buttons, where did you find that!

This is one great card.

Buttons work so well for boy cards instead of flowers :)
