Echo Park - Boy Birthday Card

  As I was purging my craft room earlier this month I came across my Echo Park "So Happy Together" 6x6 paper pad.  I honestly don't know why I haven't played with this particular paper pad more often!  I think it is so versatile and fun.  These cars were so cute and I knew I wanted to make a boy birthday card.

  I cut my papers and the star (Cricut "Plantin Schoolbook" @ 3").  I added faux stitching to the star, but it still needed something.  I perused my little box of glazed brads and found this blue herringbone pattern with My Mind's Eye Lost & Found Two.  The circles beneath it came from the My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose glazed brads; I just substituted the L&F2 brad in its place.  My sentiment came from the "Girlie Doodles" stamp set.  (I got all of these items at the Shop Pumpkin Spice online store.  If you are a frugal shopper like me, this is the place to shop!)

  Last fall I made this card with this same Echo Park "So Happy Together" pad:

and last summer I made these (combined with some My Mind's Eye "Lime Twist" papers for the grass):

See what I mean?  A very versatile little collection :)

That car paper is perfect for a boy card! I have my eye on some boy paper but you know I don't NEED more paper, so I've been good and held off. If I end up getting it, I'll blame you. :D:D:D
