Tuesday is a special day. You better have your taxes done. LOL -- but no, that's not the reason it's special! It is also Feliciano's birthday. I can't believe he will be NINE years old. My second grandboy, of three. All the grands are getting too big. Sigh. Time flies faster and faster the older you get. So - enjoy it now, while you can. Make every minute count. And tell your loved ones you love them as often as you can! :)
Feliciano likes basketball, the Seattle Seahawks and the Seattle Mariners teams, so I went with a Mariners/Seahawks color scheme on my card. The adorable images are by Melonheadz Illustrating. The boy from the teenagers bundle and the balloon bunch, a free download. The best part? This little guy actually looks like Feliciano! I love it.
I used the balloons to make a matching envelope seal.
The inlaid birthday message is a die by Paper Smooches. I decided rather than make it a different color, I liked the look of the white on white so I left it. Kinda cool!
Inside is this gift card envelope die by My Creative Time. I tucked in some money for him to pick out his own birthday present. He really enjoys getting "real paper money" in lieu of presents! Works for me. :)
You can find Melonheadz on Etsy. The set I used for my basketball player is called Teenagers. And you can find lots of freebie image downloads on the Melonheadz Friends blog. Check them out!
