Little William

Hello everyone,
What a beautiful day.... i don't know about the rest of you, but the sun is beaming down on us here in the South Staffs!
I made this card for my liitle friend William. I am invited to his 2nd birthday party in a few weeks time, so i thought i'd make him an extra special card.
I was so stuck to begin with... no stamps, no images, i had nothing really sutible. Until i came acroos the FF decoupage i won in Sarahs candy. Now as i've said before, i'm not a huge fan of decoupage... but i'm really pleased with this card, and i think William will like it too! :O)

A Close-Up:

I didn't know it, but my card fits into 2 challanges: Cute Card Thursday, which is to use wheels on your project, and ABC which is two tone. 2 colours.( not including, white, skin, ect).
I have chose, grey and red. I think this is a really nice combonation after looking at it again, and i will definatly use it on another male card.
I've just started to ink my edges more too, i apply some ink around the ede, and then drag it to the centre with a sponge. There is a great tutorial on how to this on Just Magnolia with distress inks by the lovely Kim :O)
The paper was free with the FF pack, and the cardstock is PM. The circles were handcut by me, ( :O) and i've added a little card candy. Thew sentiment is from a CCSR stamp set, and the gems are from stash. I have made the name with doodle- bug rub-ons.

Thanks for looking, i had a great response to my last set of cards!
