Happy Birthday little man...

'Extreme' provided by The Paper Shelter
 I have to laugh at myself - sometimes I want so badly to create outside the 'box' - [the confinements of the basic card shapes]... but then I gotta make an envelope to fit it!  Just sayin'.
So here I am using the wonderful sentiment that Marie-Clare is providing as a 'Freebie' at Aud Sentiments.  I love this positive affirmation for my little people - and for a couple of my big people too!  Combined with this fun image from the Paper Shelter, I have a perfect card for my "little man".
This card was created for the new Challenge #106 at Aud Sentiments - the theme is to "Use a Sentiment for a Child".  The Sponsor this go around is The Paper Shelter and they are providing a $20 Gift Certificate to the winner!  Click on over to Aud Sentiments - grab one of the two great sentiments Marie-Clare has offered as Freebies - check out the great samples from the designers and get your entry in ASAP!  You have till May 19 to enter up to 5 projects.
