DT Post by Kate - Basketball loving birthday boy!

Welcome to My Craft Spot! I'm Kate from Small Bits of Paper and I'm thrilled to be sharing a sweet birthday card with you today. My youngest nephew recently turned four years old.  He absolutely loves basketball so when I saw the adorable little basketball boy from the new Create a Friend cartridge, I knew it would be perfect for my nephew's card.

The Create a Friend character actually has a 1 on his shirt so I used my Gypsy to switch things to a 4 (in order to match my nephew's age).  I used a Peachy Keen face for the little guy's face.  Both the blue and white mats were embossed with a Quick Kutz polka-dot folder.

The Happy Birthday! sentiment is from Inside & Out - Set #2.  I used one of the dies from Tiny Banners and Toppers metal dies for the little pennants at the side.  I finished things off with some fun enamel dots.

Thanks for dropping by My Craft Spot!  Have a fabulous day!
