Happy Birthday

I am hoping to get the remainder of the cards that I completed a couple of days ago uploaded today but I also have some DT projects to complete so that might not happen.  I am at least getting this one uploaded.  This time I haven't included the optional twist - I just couldn't come up with an idea on how to incorporate something local.

This is the front of the card when closed with part of the image showing through the aperture:

With the card opened, it reveals the rest of the image:

And I added the message panel to the reverse of the card so there was more room to write:

I would like to enter:

  1. Wonderful use of the image Suze - using the peek a boo element is fabulous

  2. So great this aperture card with this little boy on it.
    Thanks for joining the challenge at Carlin's Kaartenparadijs.

  3. Hi
    I saw a sneak peak of you card at Beccy's place, I just had to visit your blog, and tell you how much I like your card. The way he looks through the "window" - I love it.This boy looks so much like my grandson! I have to make a birthday card for him, using this boy. May I copy your card? Thank you for sharing, and making it possible for me to learn something new.

  4. Wow what a beauty.
    Thank you for joining us at carlin's kaartenparadijs.
    Good Luck !

  5. Love it Suze! I really like the idea of placing the sentiment on the back of the card so the centre can be filled with decorations and other design elements. I also love the way you've added the window in the front of the card so we have a sneak peek at Little Phill playing his video game.

  6. I like the idea of the just the head and shoulders showing inside the cutout circle. Just beckons you to open up the card for more reveal. Hugs Mrs A.
