All papers used came from Urban Roundabout Papers Set 2, the ribbon and card candy are from stash and I made the little birthday banner in photoshop. I decorated the inside of the card the same as the front, but used a different Ben graphic.
On the front I used 2 images of Ben and layered them up cutting off his back leg and arms on the top layer, the mat he sits on is embossed with a Debbi Moore Paw Prints embossing sheet which goes through the Big Shot but to be honest I was a bit disappointed with the way it came out, and I had to add a shim to get it to emboss enough to just about be able to see it.
and here is a close up of the image I used inside the card.
For the layout I used the sketch from Fetch a Sketch a new challenge blog, co-run by Ruth one of my Polkadoodle teamies, there are some fab prizes up for grabs, so go take a look.
Head over to the Clipart Fairy store and check out the rest of the Ben images, (there is also a girly version called Beth) and all the Christmas goodies that are being added daily.
