Handmade Card - First year Birthday

Last Saturday I got an invitation call from one of my friends, to attend his son's birthday party. The party was that day evening itself. I always prefer to give handmade gifts and cards. To many kids and infants I have gifted  applique work quilts and crocheted frocks .
As the party was on same day, I could not make any gift, so thought of buying it. Made  a simple card to wish the kid on his birthday. I'm not so good in making amazing cards, like some of my craft friends make. While making card, I give importance to theme.
 As it was for baby , I  selected pink color paper.

 And attached attached the border made by Martha Stwewart punches on the edges.

 To make the theme "one year birthday", cut the shape of  1 and attached some ready made embellishments I had. I made it colorful, thinking the child might like the bright colors :)

Until then,  
Love , laugh and live the life to the fullest,
