It's Your Birthday...

I made this card for one of the boys in my Sunday School class. He will be 6 on Friday.  Zach's favorite color is yellow so I  used yellow as the base of my card.  I added stripped patterned paper to the top half with the stripes going vertical. I punched a piece of white cardstock using a double loop punch and added a piece of the same striped paper to the top of it.  This time with the stripes going horizontal.
To create Zach's name at the bottom of the card I took a piece of alphabet blocked paper and cut out each letter.  The image that I used is from Doodle Dragons Studio. I colored it using crayola and prisma colored pencils.  I backed the image in blue and added it to the top middle of the card.  I stamped the sentiment onto the same patterned paper and backed it in blue and added it to the upper left corner of the the image.  I added two orange star buttons.  One to the bottom left corner of the image and one to the top right corner of the card.
