Happy Birthday Jimmy!

....I don't even know Jimmy! :) A good friend recently asked me to create a birthday card for her guessed it....his name is Jimmy. So, this is the card I came up with for the Jimmy whom I don't know.

I used my wallstreetafella for the main image. Apparently, Jimmy works for a computer company and he has a law degree. I envisioned him to be a professional fella...and that is why I chose to use my wallstreetafella.

The image was coloured with pencils and blended with OMS. The sentiment is from my SU! set Warmest Regards. I used an SU! punch to punch out the sentiment and then cut the mat for the sentiment by hand.

The circle cut out for the main image was made with a Colluzle template and blade. The tabs at the top of the card were made with the SU! word window punch. Eyelets attached them to the card front and they were adhered to the card base with adhesive.

The papers were all from my scrap bin! Trying to do my part to save the earth...... :)

Thanks for visiting today!
