Altered Composition notebook

I was again 'N.SPRIED' by another card designer on this project. Her name is Regan over at Emora Designs.  She is so creative and I adore her work :-)  I made this notebook for my little girl, she loves to write, draw, and scribble.  She's quite an artist I might add! Tell me what you think.

A closer look...


This is a birthday card I made for my little nephew.  I think it came out so cute.  When he received it in the mail, he LOVED it and that brought a smile to my face.  For the images, I can't remember the name of the line of paper, but I fussy cut the clouds, cars, tractor and airplane all from the same line of paper, and put them up on dimensionals.  I stamped the 'Happy Birthday' with the Curly Cute stamp set from Stampin' Up, and heat embossed it with black embossing powder.  The yellow and orange cardstock are from stampin' up as well.
Do you like????
Let me know what you think.
Thanks for stopping by
So I did this card for a challenge over at Papercraft Star and noticed I left out something when I looked at the sketch (after I finished it )... :-( but overall I enjoyed doing it.
Thanks for stopping by.
