Brothers Birthday Card

Happy Saturday to you all today is my Brothers and Mum's Birthday sadly Mum no longer here but it is still her special day. I made this card with a Penny Black image I kindly had sent to me a while ago. I kept it for him as he loves to go fishing with his 2 son's when the weather is good and with spring in the air guess he will be there as much as possible boys time.
Coloured with my promarkers and 3d glossed the image and ripples in the water might show bit better on the close up. Gems are actually a pale blue. paper is Making Memories pad. Sentiment is a Whimsey stamp i bought with a voucher from a friend ( thanks Naomei). Some string from the Leigh show last week. Sketch is from Passion for Promarkers.

I am entering this nto the following challenges
Penny Black - spring
Incey Wincy challenge -For the boys

Happy Birthday Dad made by Jake

Yesterday my nephew was at my house as he had been bit poorly much better today. lol. Well today is his Dad's Birthday so he wanted to make a card Jake being 8 years old wanted to make something different than just a normal card and had seen a circle easel i was working on but cant share till Wednesday. Can I make one of those please Aunty Sue. Image too big for a standard nestie and his bits so be made a square one we could resize. He coloured it himself saysing I need to add shadows with different coloured pens. lol. Think he had been watching while i was playing. So out came the Promarkers and my Papers and card and gems he is a Magpie for shinney things.
Well other than cut the base card he did everything else including the stamping. What do you think. Now he says can he enter a challenge with it so I am entering this on his behalf to the following.
