A Card For My Oldest One's Birthday!! He will be 9!!

This is my 2nd post today...scroll down if you would like to see my other one...

So I shared the cute little birthday card I made for our 4 year I would like to share with you the card I made for our older one!! He will be 9 on the 26th! They sure do grow up fast don't they?!

For his card I used the fun and adorable sketch from "Friday Sketchers" and again the theme from "A Spoon Full Of Sugar Challenge". I just love the green and blue colors together!

As I said, I've been trying to make shape cards lately, so this is my first circle card. I think it turned out so adorable! I used the cute little dino stamp set from "My Favorite Things" along with the sweet matching sentiments for the front and inside!

Here's a closeup and the inside...

PAPERS: Bright blue textured cardstock and Glittery green and yellow cardstock from "DCWV". Plain black and white cardstock for the base.
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image image was handstamped and is from "My Favorite Things (MFT)" along with the inside and outside sentiments.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with PrismaColor Pencils and a Gamsol technique was used.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Checkered green, blue, white and yellow satin ribbon, blue dew drop and a yellow button with black cotton thread.
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Spellbinders" with circles, scalloped circles, long rectangles and long scalloped rectangles dies. "Cuttlebug" with bubbles embossing folder. 
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with white color thread. The image and sentiment was cut, paper pieced and 3D mounted.
