HAPPY BIRTHDAY {My Besties Aussie Challenge - Die Cuts}


The theme for the month of June at My Besties Aussie Challenge, is DIE CUTS.

So here is my very second design team project for My Besties Aussie and, also for the first time only, using this super cute and quirky little boy from Sherri Baldy which you can purchase HERE

The  folded embellishments have been created with scallop square punches.  The brads, self adhesive photo corners and design papers are from my stash.  The image has been coloured with copics, dry chalks for the clouds and a white H2O Derwent pencil. 

The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  

Hop over to My Besties Aussie Challenge and enter your Bestie creations for Challenge 6
