Two Child Birthday Cards

Just got two orders for child birthday cards from two clients. The first one had to have a Disney Cars theme. I did not have a digi of this very popular little car and since Disney images are copyrighted, I decided to search on the internet for a Cars coloring page and found one at Squidoo.

I always have a bit of a hard time with child birthday cards. I want to make sure they are bright, fun and safe.

Just a tidbit about the little car I used as a prop in my photo. I purchased that little car when I was about 7 years old with my own money. While I was visiting my parents recently, I found it in my old closet and decided to bring it back with me out of nostalgia. I am glad I did... it is a perfect prop for this card.

The second order was for a two year old godchild. My client requested that his name be on the card and to use little boy colors. I had this beautiful rubber stamp by SonLight Impressions called Celebration. I have never used it before and thought it would be perfect for a two year old child card. It did not fit properly on the card I was making, so I stamped it, scanned it and resized it to what I needed. Isn't it the sweetest little birthday bear you have ever seen?
