My Scottish Laddie's Birthday

Hi Everyone!

I am back today to share my hubs' birthday card with you, his birthday is next week but I always like to get in early to make sure my card is finished on time! My husband is Scottish, so I had bought this stamp ages ago, thinking about using it for his cards and for some of my Scottish in-laws, but I had forgotten all about this little lad until I went rummaging around in my stamp box and found him again! I've used the modern O'Reilly tartan colours, even though my husband's roots really lie in Ireland. I've fashioned the DPs to remotely resemble the Scottish flag, even though I have to admit you need quite a bit of imagination to spot that! I've used stars and the rocket sentiment stamp, as he is a real space and astronomy fanatic. Hope you like it! Enjoy the rest of your weekend :)



Materials:
* The Greeting Farm Ian Laddie
*  First Edition Up Up & Away DP and scraps from stash
* TH Distress tool  + inking around the DPs edges
* Stampendous Changito in Space stamp Set (Stars on the DP & sentiment inside)
