Birthday Fun 4 Kids

Hi, everyone!

The card below was made for the current SAS4Kids Birthday Fun Challenge and will be included in the next box of cards I send to Nationwide Children's. If you are an SAS4Kids card maker and have some extra Valentines 4 Kids, I'd be more than happy to include them in my next shipment to the hospital. Big thanks to Lee Mae and Diane for their Valentines.  :)

Distress Ink core; Recollections black and white cardstock
Mama Elephant Tiny Heroes images, colored with Prismacolor pencils
Tiny Heroes and Winnie & Walter sentiment in StazOn black
Darice embossing folder; Creative Memories oval cutting system
Stampin' Up star and ??? star corner punches
My Favorite Things shimmer Mix-ables Mist
adhesives: Scotch ATG; Zig 2-way pen; Zots glue dots; Ranger multi medium matte
Okay, I'm really new to this coloring thing. At least for now, I'm coloring with Prismacolor pencils -- waiting to see how it goes before I decide to invest in any of the pricier markers.
This is the third image that I've colored. And, I think the look I'm achieving seems perfect for kid cards.
I love the starburst. It is hand drawn and fussy cut, then misted with a shimmery spray. In addition, the blue stars were punched out from a misted piece of Distress Ink blue paper.
In addition to the SAS4Kids challenge, I'm linking these tiny heroes up to the following challenges:
Parting Thoughts
There is still a week to play along with our current Words 2 Craft By challenge. The current white-on-white Cards in Envy challenge closes this weekend. We'd love for you to join us for these challenges.
Have an idea for a 16th birthday card for a nephew. Hope to explore that a little this week.
Stay warm! Thanks for stopping and happy scrappin'!
