Happy 4th Birthday Aleksis!!!

I made this one for my nephew who is turning 4 this month. I was actually going to use the ladybug cut that was holding a 4 on the Birthday Bash cart...my son...who is 18 said...no ladybug...too girlie. I thought...really...for a 4 year old? He wanted me to use this bull...so that's what I did. It did turn out cute...do you think ladybugs are too girlie?

Recipe:

  • Birthday Bash cart-pg 45   bull cut at 4"
  • MME-Hootenany paper pad and Together twine(aqua)
  • American Crafts-white and black card stock and black and white twine
  • Bazzill-blue card stock x 2 from the Earth tones stack
  • pink scrap ? brand
  • CTMH-chocolate ink, Card Chatter Birthday Occasions stamp set
  • My Creative Time-Stitched button dies, ticket dies, Fun ticket stamp set
  • Recollections kraft card stock
  • Glossy Accents
  • Making Memories black brads
  • EK Success border punch
  • SU Pennant punch

Good choice using the bull! The lady bug is cute, but this is better! : )

Super fun skating bull on twine (genius) and terrific pennant paper in the background. I love his skate laces :)

What an adorable birthday card!!! LOVE the bull and have to agree...while the lady bug would be cute this is better :)
Awesome job! Thanks for sharing and have a GREAT Thursday!

I love the bull with the roller skates. I do think this is more of a boy card than the lady bug. However, in the Bugs Life movie they do have a boy lady bug. :) Great job on the card. ~Tami

Cute card! And I'd always been told that you couldn't roller skate in a buffalo herd. Who knew?
