DIY Birthday Card

We had a lovely time yesterday at a friend's daughter's 3rd birthday party.
All the children had a great time on the trampoline and running around the backyard like crazy.

Anyway, I LOVE making cards and so it was a great excuse to get creative. I wanted to match the card to her present which was a talking fairy gadget so I decided to illustrate and paint a woodland mushroom picture with a '3' in it.

I've always got a packet of blank cards and some thick coloured card stock so I drew up the picture and then painted it with my old-school watercolour set and stuck the picture to the blank card using double sided sticky tape and 'Voila!' it even matches the wrapping!
