Birthday Boy "Knight Connor"

*Updated with card details and a little chat*

Details to follow soon.  I just wanted to get the picture posted so you have some eye candy.

This is the card I made for my son for his birthday party we had on Saturday.  It was a good day with family.  Very quiet.  Maybe a friends party next  year but this year we decided to do a quiet family party again.
I used some aqua mist cardstock (I think, from PTI).  the rest is all basically scraps from the goody bags I made for his class party.
I used PTI polka dot basics and borders and corners monogram edition to make the pattern on the colored scraps of paper.  The Knight Connor from Whimsy was the exact same one I used for the goody bag.  We had a few extras so I just took it off and retaped it onto his card.  My son seemed pleased with it and I was pleased with the fact that I was able to get rid of some scraps instead of just throwing them out or forgetting about them.
There is still plenty of time to enter the giveaway on the post here.  I hope to see your creations soon.
Thanks for stopping by!!!

I really like how this turned out! I have been trying to use up some of my stamps also. Hate throwing that paper out.
