Up Up and Away Birthday Boy card (Bugaboo image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I love this little image from Bugaboo and I just thought he'd be so cute floating above the tree tops near clouds. I die cut my sun out of some scrap paper so I could use the negative part to make a stencil and ink it up. I used a couple of different shades of green distress inks and then die cut the trees from it.
