9th Birthday Card - Day 18

Hey Everyone!  Thanks for visiting me for day 18 of my October Card Challenge.  I know I am still behind, but I'm going to spend tonight getting the cards up to date on here.  I have still been making a card a day, I just wish there were more hours in the day so that I would have more time to do everything that needs to get done.

Today I am going to be sharing with you a 9th Birthday Card.  The card was made for my boyfriends Nephew who will be turning 9.  Last year I made him a hockey card, which was toronto maple leaf themed, so this year I needed to get creative, and I thought that maybe a card with a car on it might be cool for him.  As I began looking for papers that would work with the car that I coloured I stumbled across ALOT of papers for boy/guy cards.  I don't remember purchasing them, but now that I know that I have them believe me there will be a lot more male birthday cards coming your way.  

I used a lot of scraps from my stash to create this fact each and every one of the arrows was already cut out and ready and waiting to end up on a card.  Something else that I really enjoy doing is creating a personalized card, so I thought this was the perfect opportunity to add his name and how old he was turning to the card.

I hope that you all enjoy this card!

Here's the image that I used and coloured for the card...
