A Snappy Happy Birthday Card

This card measures approximately 5ins x 5ins and uses a hand cut, white linen blank as its base.

I made this card for my brother-in-law Graeme and to be honest is a bit of a hodge podge of stickers.
I started by making the background for the wooden Hobbycraft frame sent to me very kindly by Paula, a Fiddle Fart follower, a little while ago.
I then added a mix of  two different sets of small alphabet stickers for the sentiment ............
...... before deciding that the frame would look much better if it was coloured with a red Sharpie pen.
I then built up the picture using an assortment of Paperchase (parcels, bunting and stars) and a puffy Hobbycraft crocodile.
I just love the crocodiles face ....... but adding a pair of tiny googly eyes made him look even cuter.
A few clusters of three dots here and there using a black fine liner pen help bring the card together.
.......... Another card done and dusted.
