Eight is Great!

A birthday card for an eight year old.  My son will be turning eight this summer, so he'll be going to other kids parties who are also turning eight.  This card is for three challenges at Runway Inspired Challenge, a kid themed challenge at Less is More, and a punch / die cut challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.  This is my second card for the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays.  The first one is here.

  1. What a fun, bright card - and what a great idea you have just given me. Prepare a pack of cards for a friend whose little girl is just starting school. Now that makes a good gift - thanks for the idea and I just love your card.
