Roary The Racing Car Birthday Card

This card is for my godson who'll be 3 on Christmas day. His mum asked me to make a card to be sent into Channel 5's Milkshake, so they can show it and read out a birthday message to Nathan on Christmas morning. I did a card for this also last year, and silly me forgot to record it and so did his, but they did see it, so I must make sure I set the Sky+ to record it this year. Last year's and this year's theme was Roary the Racing Car, so I had to try and do something different this year. Firstly I'll show you last years card:

The Roary image and logo were printed from the Milkshake website as images to colour. Coloured with H2O's, printed sentiment from PC and coloured. I took some photo's of Nathan in his Roary hat and scarf sitting on the stairs, then printed the photo out and cut round Nathan and placed him on Roary's back tyre so it looked like Nathan was sitting on Roary.

Now for this years card.

Nathan has now become Big Thanks to a link posted on Image-n-ation (sorry can't remember who posted it) the site is called Face In Hole. It's a really fun site where you can put a face on animals, celebrities, kids characters etc... Anyway I was well chuffed when they had this Roary image. The background papers and tyres are from Kanban. The lettering is black corrugated card cut in the CB using the Hippy Chic alphabet set.
