3rd Birthday Card - Stamper Anonymous - On The Farm

Our little Grand Son Jacob, is celebrating his 3rd Birthday.  Jakie is our little star.  He was born with Downs Syndrome and had a very difficult first year, mostly spent in hospital.  He is a little behind other children of the same age but he is the most loving little fella you could wish to meet.

In making this card I wanted to make him laugh, so I positioned the farm animal on top of each other.  The animal stamps are part of a set by Stampers Anonymous and is called "On The Farm CMS303".  I stamped the animals in different shades of Versafine ink and coloured with Promarkers.

Using a wash of Distress Oxide paints, I created the background colour.  When dry, I stamped the line of trees using a Lavinia Stamp called "Trees" stamped in Versafine "Smokey Grey" ink.

The grass tufts and orange flowers are stamps from a Papertrey Ink stamp set called "Love Lives Here", stamped in Versafine Clair ink.

Finally, I stamped the sentiment at the top of the card.  The "3rd" was part of a free set of stamps from a magazine.  The "Happy Birthday" stamps I have had for years and don't recall who made them.
