John Deer Birthday!

The boys were invited to a birthday party today and the theme was John Deer. I wanted to make a tractor card and this is what I came up with. I am not sure what the background wheel is called, it is retired from several catalogues ago. It is hard to see but I sponged the sky with Bashful Blue and the ground with Soft Suede. The presents stacked on the inside of the card are kind of funny looking don't you think? I always like to involve my boys in the card making process when it is for the friends. I asked Craig to pick the present colors and he picked pink so naturally I said 'your friend that is a boy does not want a pink present' and Craig said 'but mom, pigs are pink.' They always have a reason for doing things. So Craig picked Black polka dots to be like a cow, the pink box is for the pig and the Striped boxed is for the chickens and rooster.

To make this card:

Card Stock - Garden Green, Yo Yo Yellow, Whisper White, Sahara Sand, Basic Black and Daffodil Delight
Ink - StazOn Black, Soft Suede, Bashful Blue, Blushing Bride, Old Olive, Black, Cajun Craze, Close to Cocoa and Daffodil Delight
Punches - 1 1/4" and 1 3/4" Square, Scallop Circle, 1 1/4", 1" and 1/2" Circle and Word Window
Other - Wheel ? and Sponges

Have a great day!
